Abstract : Quartz crystal resonators have been employed in a number of thermometer applications. We have recently discovered two new thermometric cuts; one exhibits a high degree of linearity over a wide temperature range; the other is located in the vicinity of the stress compensated locus. These doubly rotated cuts were found by calculations based on the thickness - vibration theory for ideal plates. This paper presents theoretical and experimental results concerning the frequency-temperature characteristics of these quartz resonators.
