The nature 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 2.5°C below its normal transition temperature even at a very slow cooling rate 0.2°C 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.
