Hall resistance and magnetic torque measurements have been carried out in the field-induced spin-density-wave (FISDW) phase of deuterated (TMTSF) 2ClO 4 for various cooling rates through the anion ordering temperature. We have found that the Hall resistance in the intermediate cooled state shows a phase transition from the non-quantized Hall phase to the quantized Hall phase (n = 1) with hysteresis. We have also found that the magnetic torque in the non-quantized Hall phase rapidly decreases with increasing cooling rate. These results suggest that there is a new phase transition from the non-quantized Hall phase to the quantized Hall phase in (TMTSF) 2ClO 4.
