THE FIRST HUNDRED BROWN DWARFS DISCOVERED BY THE WIDE-FIELD INFRARED SURVEY EXPLORER (WISE)
We present ground-based spectroscopic verification of 6 Y dwarfs (see also Cushing et al.), 89 T dwarfs, 8 L dwarfs, and 1 M dwarf identified by the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). Eighty
FURTHER DEFINING SPECTRAL TYPE "Y" AND EXPLORING THE LOW-MASS END OF THE FIELD BROWN DWARF MASS FUNCTION
We present the discovery of another seven Y dwarfs from the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). Using these objects, as well as the first six WISE Y dwarf discoveries from Cushing et al., we
The Brown Dwarf Kinematics Project I. Proper motions and tangential velocities for a large sample of late-type M, L, and T dwarfs
We report proper-motion measurements for 427 late-type M, L, and T dwarfs, 332 of which have been measured for the first time. Combining these new proper motions with previously published
The Discovery of Y Dwarfs using Data from the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE)
We present the discovery of seven ultracool brown dwarfs identified with the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). Near-infrared spectroscopy reveals deep absorption bands of H_(2)O and CH_4
Initial Performance of the NEOWISE Reactivation Mission
NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) spacecraft has been brought out of hibernation and has resumed surveying the sky at 3.4 and 4.6 um. The scientific objectives of the NEOWISE
Reflected Spectra and Albedos of Extrasolar Giant Planets. I. Clear and Cloudy Atmospheres
The reflected spectra of extrasolar giant planets are primarily influenced by Rayleigh scattering, molecular absorption, and atmospheric condensates. We present model geometric albedo and
The First Hyper-Luminous Infrared Galaxy Discovered by WISE
TLDR
WISE 1814+3412 may be a heavily obscured object where the peak AGN activity occurred prior to the peak era of star formation, and the prototype for an all-sky sample of ~1000 extremely luminous "W1W2-dropouts".
A Sample of Very Young Field L Dwarfs and Implications for the Brown Dwarf “Lithium Test” at Early Ages*
Using a large sample of optical spectra of late-type dwarfs, we identify a subset of late-M through L field dwarfs that, because of the presence of low-gravity features in their spectra, are believed
SpeX Spectroscopy of Unresolved Very Low Mass Binaries. I. Identification of 17 Candidate Binaries Straddling the L Dwarf/T Dwarf Transition
We report the identification of 17 candidate brown dwarf binaries whose components straddle the L dwarf/T dwarf transition. These sources were culled from a large near-infrared spectral sample of L
