Abstract

We summarize the results of the NICMOS warmup monitoring program. Instrument parameters such as quantum efficiency, dark current, focus behavior, bias offsets, and saturation levels have been measured and are projected onto the expected temperature range for operation with the NICMOS Cooling System (NCS). We estimate NICMOS performance during the NCS era, and briefly discuss possible implications for the cycle 9 calibration program. 1
