A temperature probe attached to a microwave resonant cavity is interfaced to a microcomputer. The microcomputer allows temperature data to be taken very rapidly as a dielectric undergoes a phase change over a small temperature interval. This technique is shown to improve temperature measurements during dielectric relaxation studies in polar molecules near their phase transition temperatures.
