原始语种摘要: In this paper the results of birefringence studies and of optical observations in polarized light in a wide temperature region are presented for crystals Cs2CdI4 and Cs2ZnI4. There is the following sequence of phases: commensurate orthorhombic Pnma ↔ incommensurate ↔ monoclinic ferroelastic P21/n ↔ triclinic ferroelastic PT. A correlation was observed between the peculiarities of birefringence and NQR spectra temperature dependence. An assumption is made, that in Cs2ZnI4 crystal in a broad pre-transition region (T - Ti = 100 K) precursor clusters exist, which manifest themselves as coexistence of NQR spectra of two phases and as deviation of birefringence from the linear temperature dependence (“tail”).
