Context. A selection of ultracool dwarfs are known to be radio active, with both gyrosynchrotron emission and the electron cyclotron maser instability being given as likely emission mechanisms. Aims. We explore whether ultracool dwarfs previously undetected at 8.5 GHz may be detectable at a lower frequency. Methods. We select a sample of fast rotating ultracool dwarfs with no detectable radio activity at 8.5 GHz, observing each of them at 4.9 GHz. Results. From the 8 dwarfs in our sample, we… Expand

The Radio Activity-Rotation Relation of Ultracool Dwarfs
We present a new radio survey of about 100 late-M and L dwarfs undertaken with the Very Large Array. The sample was chosen to explore the role of rotation in the radio activity of ultracool dwarfs.Expand
Low-frequency GMRT observations of ultra-cool dwarfs
Observations of radio emission in about 10 per cent of ultra-cool dwarfs (UCDs) indicate the presence of strong, persistent magnetic fields in these stars. These results are in contrast to earlyExpand
COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF TWO FORMATION SCENARIOS OF BURSTY RADIO EMISSION FROM ULTRACOOL DWARFS
Recently, a number of ultracool dwarfs have been found to produce periodic radio bursts with high brightness temperature and polarization degree; the emission properties are similar to the auroralExpand

Discovery of radio emission from the brown dwarf LP944-20
TLDR
It is shown that LP944-20 has an unusually weak magnetic field in comparison to active M-dwarf stars, which might explain the previous null optical and X-rays results, as well as the strength of the radio emissions compared to those at X-ray wavelengths. Expand
