A new crystal optical method for temperature measuring based on the sign inversion of birefringence $\Delta n$ and temperature dependence of $\Delta n (T)$ is substantiated. The respective characteristics of some crystals are presented, which confirm good metrological and exploitation properties of the method. It is noted that the method solves some problems which arise in thermometry based on thermoelectricity and thermoresistance. The proposed method also gives better possibilities for measuring the temperature in hard conditions (in the region of high electric and magnetic fields, rotating workpieces etc.).
Key words: temperature, inversion of birefringence sign, scale of
