Abstract. It has been shown that the intensity of linearly polarized light transmitted through CdS single crystal depends on its temperature. It has been found that the temperature of crystal does not affect the linearity of light polarization at the exit of crystal, but leads only to rotation of the polarization plane. It has been ascertained that in the range between 11 to 170 °C, the temperature dependence of the linear expansion coefficient and the difference between the refractive indices of unusual and ordinary beams can be neglected.

Keywords: polarizer, analyzer, temperature, CdS single crystal.
