Toward Spectral Classification of L and T Dwarfs: Infrared and Optical Spectroscopy and Analysis
We present 0.6-2.5 μm, R 400 spectra of 27 cool, low-luminosity stars and substellar objects. Based on these and previously published spectra, we develop a preliminary spectral classification systemExpand
