Nicrosil is an austenitic nickel-chromium-silicon alloy (NiCrSi alloy) used for the positive leg of thermocouples type N. It offers higher thermoelectric stability in air above 1000°C (1830°F) and a better oxidation resistance in air than type E, J and K thermocouples.

Nicrosil alloy can not be exposed to reducing or alternatively oxidizing and reducing atmospheres or to vacuum. This thermocouple is the most recent one among the different types covered by the international standards.
