Abstract : The diamagnetic transition in CuCl has been verified, and materials studies have been carried out to determine the conditions under which this transition, which may per precursive to high temperature superconductivity, may be found. A photoactivated, defect induced dielectric anomaly has been detected in CuCl, and the relationship of the anomalies to the superdiamagnetism has been explored. Equilibrium measurements of superdiamagnetism and the diamagnetic transition on samples of CuCl epitaxially grown on single crystals of silicon have been carried out.
