Space Velocities of L- and T-type Dwarfs
We have obtained radial velocities of a sample of 18 ultracool dwarfs (M6.5-T8) using high-resolution, near-infrared spectra obtained with NIRSPEC and the Keck II telescope. We have confirmed thatExpand

Dynamical Masses of the Binary Brown Dwarf GJ 569 Bab
We have obtained new images and high-resolution (R ~ 22,400) near-infrared (1.2400-1.2575 μm) spectra of each component of the brown dwarf binary GJ 569 Bab using the adaptive optics facility of theExpand

The substellar mass function in σ Orionis II. Optical, near-infrared and IRAC/Spitzer photometry of young cluster brown dwarfs and planetary-mass objects ,
Aims. We investigate the mass function in the substellar domain down to a few Jupiter masses in the young σ Orionis open cluster (3 ± 2M a,d = 360 +70 −60 pc). Methods. We have performed a deepExpand

A Methane isolated planetary mass object in orion
We report on the discovery of a free-floating methane dwarf toward the direction of the young star cluster σ Ori. Based on the object's far-red, optical, and near-infrared photometry andExpand

Spectroscopic Rotational Velocities of Brown Dwarfs
We have obtained projected rotation velocities (vrot sin i) of a sample of 19 ultracool dwarfs with spectral types in the interval M6.5-T8 using high-resolution, near-infrared spectra obtained withExpand

Glancing views of the Earth. From a lunar eclipse to an exoplanetary transit
It has been posited that lunar eclipse observations may help predict the in-transit signature of Earth-like extrasolar planets. However, a comparative analysis of the two phenomena addressing inExpand

A Search for Very Low Mass Stars and Brown Dwarfs in the Young σ Orionis Cluster
We present a CCD-based photometric survey covering 870 arcmin2 in a young stellar cluster around the young multiple star σ Orionis. Our survey-limiting R, I, and Z magnitudes are 23.2, 21.8, andExpand
