SpeX: A Medium‐Resolution 0.8–5.5 Micron Spectrograph and Imager for the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility
We present the design, construction, and performance of SpeX, a medium-resolution 0.8-5.5 mm cryogenic spectrograph and imager, now in operation at the 3.0 m NASA Infrared Telescope Facility (IRTF)Expand

Spextool: A Spectral Extraction Package for SpeX, a 0.8–5.5 Micron Cross‐Dispersed Spectrograph
ABSTRACT We describe an IDL‐based package for the reduction of spectral data obtained with SpeX, a medium‐resolution, 0.8–5.5 μm cross‐dispersed spectrograph and imager for the NASA InfraredExpand

A Method of Correcting Near‐Infrared Spectra for Telluric Absorption*
We present a method for correcting near-infrared medium-resolution spectra for telluric absorption. The method makes use of a spectrum of an A0 V star, observed near in time and close in air mass toExpand

An Infrared Spectroscopic Sequence of M, L, and T Dwarfs*
We present a 0.6-4.1 ?m spectroscopic sequence of M, L, and T dwarfs. The spectra have R ? ?/?? ? 2000 from 0.9 to 2.4 ?m and R = 2500-200 from 2.9 to 4.1 ?m. These new data nearly double the numberExpand

THE 0.8-14.5 μm SPECTRA OF MID-L TO MID-T DWARFS: DIAGNOSTICS OF EFFECTIVE TEMPERATURE, GRAIN SEDIMENTATION, GAS TRANSPORT, AND SURFACE GRAVITY
We present new 5.2-14.5 {mu}m low-resolution spectra of 14 mid-L to mid-T dwarfs. We also present new 3.0-4.1 {mu}m spectra for five of these dwarfs. These data are supplemented by existing red andExpand
