Paper Abstract

The introduction of large area arrays provides new technical challenges in the retro-fit of existing astronomical instrument dewars and in the design of new dewars. The evolutionary implementation of cryogenically cooled dewars for visible CCDs at NOAO is described. The performance specifications required by applications in ground-based astronomy are discussed. Various dewar designs are presented and performance characteristics are given where applicable.
