Crystal Growth and Characterization of Bil3Bismuth tri-iodide (BiI3) have been grown by physical vapor transport (PVT), and by the Bridgman (melt) method. These crystals along with pure and stoichiometric BiI3 powder have been investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The DSC results show that pure BiI3 powder has no phase transition and melts around 408 C. While we found no evidence for the high temperature dissociation of BiI3, the DSC measurements show that crystals grown from melt method contain a significantly large amount of Bi-rich phases than crystals grown from PVT method, as indicated by phase transition detected at 270, 285, 298 and 336 C.
