dc.description.abstractWe report on the white dwarf (WD) cooling sequence of the old globular cluster NGC 6752, which is chemically complex and hosts a blue horizontal branch. This is one of the last globular cluster WE) cooling sequences accessible to imaging by the Hubble Space Telescope. Our photometry and completeness tests show that we have reached the peak of the luminosity function of the WD cooling sequence, at a magnitude m(F606w) = 29.4 +/- 0.1, which is consistent with a formal age of similar to 14 Gyr. This age is also consistent with the age from fits to the main-sequence turn-off (13-14 Gyr), reinforcing our conclusion that we observe the expected accumulation of WDs along the cooling sequence.en_US
