The investigation of the Faraday effect in DyVO_4-type Jahn-Teller crystals, containing two Kramers doublets E' and E'' in the low-energy part of the electron spectrum, is performed. The components of the tensor of linear magnetooptical effect are obtained in the mean field approximation. The ionic contributions into the effect are separated, the features of their temperature dependencies are studied. The estimate of the so-called crystalline contributions into the Faraday effect is performed. It is shown that the crystalline contributions increase and can be of the same order as the ionic one when we approach to the absorption edge.Comments: Figs. 1, Refs. 9, Tabs. 0.
