    A new algorithm for measurement of extreme temperature is presented. This algorithm reduces the measurement of the unknown temperature to the solving of an optimal control problem, using a numerical computer. Based on this method, a new device for extreme temperature measurements is projected. It consists of a hardware part that includes some standard temperature sensors and it also has a software section. The principal component of the device is a rod. The variation in the temperature, which is produced near one end of the rod, is determined using some temperature measurements at the other end of the rod and the new algorithm described here. The mathematical model of the device and the algorithm are explained in detail. At the same time, some possible practical implementations and a collection of simulations are presented.
