Abstract The present invention relates to an infrared sensor adapted to be stabilized in temperature and an infrared thermometer with an infrared sensor adapted to be stabilized in temperature, more particularly, a clinical thermometer for temperature measurement in the ear. The infrared sensor has a casing (14) with a window (12) transparent to infrared radiation which are made of materials with a good thermal conduction and are thermally connected to a heating and/or cooling element (16). Further, the infrared sensor includes a temperature sensor (18) which may be identical with the heating and/or cooling element (16).
