of the β to α phase transition in silver iodide was investigated
by conventional and modulated temperature DSC and dielectric property measurements.
On cooling, the high temperature phase remained stable 2.5C below its
normal transition temperature even at a very slow cooling rate 0.2C h–1.
Dielectric property measurements under conventional and microwave heating
suggested an anomalous effect of the latter on the β to α phase
transition in this material.
