A revised near-infrared classification scheme for T dwarfs is presented, based on and superseding prior schemes developed by Burgasser and coworkers and Geballe and coworkers, and defined following the precepts of the MK process.DrawingfromtwolargespectroscopiclibrariesofTdwarfsidentifiedlargelyintheSloanDigitalSkySurvey and the Two Micron All Sky Survey, nine primary spectral standards and five alternate standards spanning spectral types T0‐T8 are identified that match criteria of spectral… 
Subtle signatures of multiplicity in late-type dwarf spectra: The unresolved M8.5 + T5 binary 2MASS J03202839-0446358
Evidence is presented that 2MASS J03202839� 0446358, a late-type dwarf with discrepant optical (M8:) and
2MASS J20261584–2943124: AN UNRESOLVED L0.5 + T6 SPECTRAL BINARY
We identify the L dwarf 2MASS J20261584–2943124 as an unresolved spectral binary, based on low-resolution, near-infrared spectroscopy from IRTF/SpeX. The data reveal a peculiar absorption feature at
The Physical Properties of Four ~600 K T Dwarfs
We present Spitzer 7.6-14.5 μm spectra of ULAS J003402.77–005206.7 and ULAS J133553.45+113005.2, two T9 dwarfs with the latest spectral types currently known. We fit synthetic spectra and photometry
A very cool brown dwarf in UKIDSS DR1
We report the discovery of a very cool brown dwarf, ULAS J003402.77−005206.7 (ULAS J0034−00), identified in the UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey First Data Release. We provide optical, near-infrared,
DISCOVERY OF THREE DISTANT, COLD BROWN DWARFS IN THE WFC3 INFRARED SPECTROSCOPIC PARALLELS SURVEY
We present the discovery of three late-type (≥T4.5) brown dwarfs, including a probable Y dwarf, in the WFC3 Infrared Spectroscopic Parallels (WISP) survey. We use the G141 grism spectra to determine
ULAS J141623.94+134836.3: A Blue T Dwarf Companion to a Blue L Dwarf
We confirm the substellar nature of ULAS J141623.94+134836.3 (aka SDSS J1416+1348B), a common proper motion companion to the blue L dwarf SDSS J141624.08+134826.7 identified by Burningham et al. and
