Abstract

A conceptual analysis of the potential cooldown and warmup methods for the MICADO filter wheel and filters has been carried out. Due to bad thermal coupling between the cryostat and the wheel it is recommended that radiation be the main means of cooldown and warmup. In preparation of the astronomical science that will be done with MICADO a shortlist of possible filters, that would help achieve the five primary science goals, is conceived. This shortlist helped form the current official list of 36 filters set by the MICADO consortium. Finally, the transmission curves of the BlackGEM filterset were measured. Difficulties with the spectrograph did give the non-conclusive expectation that the filters fulfilled the given requirements.
