    Abstract

    The goal of this project is to search for white dwarf (WD) candidates in the Capodimonte Deep Field (OACDF) photometric survey and confirm their nature through spectroscopy. In this contribution we discuss our selection criteria and present the spectra of two objects confirmed to be DA WDs (plus one misclassified object). Their spectra have been fitted with white dwarf models in order to determine their effective temperature and surface gravity.
