Abstract: Ferroelectric $\alpha-kIO_{3} \cdot HIO_{3} (T_{c} = 223k)$ at T = 300k belongs to monoclinic $syngony^{1}$ (space group $p21/c, z = 4$) and consists of two sets of dimers $H(Io3)2^{-}$, connected by strong $(R_{O\ldots O} = 2, 5A)$ hydrogen bonds. In order to clarify the structure of low-temperature ferroelectric phase and the dynamics of phase transition the temperature variable FT - IR study $(4000-400 cm^{-1})$ of polycrystalline $\alpha-KIO_{3} \cdot HIO_{3}$ have been performed from T = 300 to 13k. Pressure dependable NQR measurements (0 - 5kbar) have been performed $earlier^{2}$ at T=300 and 77K. On cooling to low temperatures the ABC structure of OH stretching vibrations $(1600 - 2800cm^{-1})$ slightly varies: the middle frequency band (B) shows the asymmetric contour and moves slightly to lower frequencies; the intensity of it decreases, whereas those of bands A, and particularly C, increase. Another striking feature in these spectra is a very strong absoraption culminating between 600 and $1200cm^{-1}$ which shows a doublet structure on cooling. Such spectral distribution is typical for symmetrical strong H-bonds between two equivalent molecules related by a center of inversion or a two-fold axis. These facts correlate well with structural $data^{1}$ and confirm the NQR conclusions about distortion of anion sublattice along with the crystal space group lowering to $P2_{1}$ at the phase transition temperature.
