White dwarfs are compact stars, similar in size to Earth but approximately 200,000 times more massive. Isolated white dwarfs emit most of their power from ultraviolet to near-infrared wavelengths, but when in close orbits with less dense stars, white dwarfs can strip material from their companions and the resulting mass transfer can generate atomic line and(More)

We present high time resolution SDSS-g and SDSS-z light curves of the primary eclipse in SDSS J141126.20+200911.1, together with time-resolved X-Shooter spec-troscopy and near-infrared JHK s photometry. Our observations confirm the substel-lar nature of the companion, making SDSS J141126.20+200911.1 the first eclipsing white dwarf/brown dwarf binary known.(More)
