Optically homogeneous single crystals of tetragonal cadmium diphosphide (β-CdP2) are prepared by vapor-phase growth, and their electrical conductivity, dielectric permittivity, and loss tangent are measured during slow heating from 78 to 400 K in the  and  directions at frequencies of 102, 103, 104, and 106 Hz. The permittivity of the crystals increases with temperature. The electrical properties of β-CdP2 are shown to be anisotropic.
