As a pilot study of magnetism in Y dwarfs, we have observed the three known infrared variable Y dwarfs WISE J085510.83−071442.5, WISE J140518.40+553421.4, and WISEP J173835.53+273258.9 with the NSF’s Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array in the 4–8 GHz frequency range. The aim was to investigate the presence of non-bursting quiescent radio emission as a proxy for highly circularly polarized radio emission associated with large-scale auroral currents. Measurements of magnetic fields on Y dwarfs may be… Expand
On the Correlation between L Dwarf Optical and Infrared Variability and Radio Aurorae
Photometric variability attributed to cloud phenomena is common in L/T transition brown dwarfs. Recent studies show that such variability may also trace aurorae, suggesting that localized magneticExpand
Direct Radio Discovery of a Cold Brown Dwarf
Magnetospheric processes seen in gas-giants such as aurorae and circularly-polarized cyclotron maser radio emission have been detected from some brown dwarfs. However, previous radio observationsExpand
A search for millimeter emission from the coldest and closest brown dwarf with ALMA
Context: WISE J085510.83-071442.5 (W0855) is a unique object: with Teff ca. 250 K, it is the coldest known brown dwarf (BD), located at only ca.2.2 pc form the Sun. It is extremely faint, which makesExpand
