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). EightyExpand
Discovery of Hα Emission from the Close Companion inside the Gap of Transitional Disk HD 142527
We utilized the new high-order 585 actuator Magellan Adaptive Optics system (MagAO) to obtain very high-resolution visible light images of HD 142527 with MagAO's VisAO science camera. In the medianExpand
Accreting protoplanets in the LkCa 15 transition disk
Exoplanet detections have revolutionized astronomy, offering new insights into solar system architecture and planet demographics. While nearly 1,900 exoplanets have now been discovered and confirmed,Expand
A STUDY OF THE DIVERSE T DWARF POPULATION REVEALED BY WISE
TLDR
The substantial increase in the number of known late-type T dwarfs provides a population that will be used to test models of cold atmospheres and star formation and supports the possible re-emergence of clouds after the L/T transition. Expand
The Gemini Planet Imager Exoplanet Survey: Giant Planet and Brown Dwarf Demographics from 10 to 100 au
Author(s): Nielsen, EL; De Rosa, RJ; Macintosh, B; Wang, JJ; Ruffio, JB; Chiang, E; Marley, MS; Saumon, D; Savransky, D; Mark Ammons, S; Bailey, VP; Barman, T; Blain, C; Bulger, J; Burrows, A;Expand
Discovery of a Probable 4-5 Jupiter-mass Exoplanet to HD 95086 by Direct Imaging
Direct imaging has only begun to inventory the population of gas giant planets on wide orbits around young stars in the solar neighborhood. Following this approach, we carried out a deep imagingExpand
MAGELLAN ADAPTIVE OPTICS FIRST-LIGHT OBSERVATIONS of the EXOPLANET β PIC b. II. 3-5 μm DIRECT IMAGING with MagAO+Clio, and the EMPIRICAL BOLOMETRIC LUMINOSITY of A SELF-LUMINOUS GIANT PLANET
We thank the Magellan and Las Campanas Observatory staff for making this well-engineered, smoothly operated telescope and site possible. We would especially like to thank Povilas Palunas for helpExpand

FIRST LIGHT LBT AO IMAGES OF HR 8799 bcde AT 1.6 AND 3.3 μm: NEW DISCREPANCIES BETWEEN YOUNG PLANETS AND OLD BROWN DWARFS*
As the only directly imaged multiple planet system, HR 8799 provides a unique opportunity to study the physical properties of several planets in parallel. In this paper, we image all four of the HRExpand
