We also attempt to test the theory that the family members are made of almost pure water ice by using optical light-curves to constrain their densities.
Characterisation of candidate members of (136108) Haumea's family
We use optical and near-infrared photometry to identify water ice, in particular using the ( J − HS ) colour as a sensitive measure of the absorption feature at 1.6 µm.
Characterisation of candidate members of (136108) Haumea's family
We use the C H4 filter of the new Hawk-I instrument at the VLT as a short H -band (HS ) for this as it is more sensitive to the water ice feature than the usual H filter.
Characterisation of candidate members of (136108) Haumea's family
