Brown dwarfs are not massive enough to sustain thermonuclear fusion of hydrogen at their centres, but are distinguished from gas-giant planets by their ability to burn deuterium. Brown dwarfs older than ∼10 Myr are expected to possess short-lived magnetic fields and to emit radio and X-rays only very weakly from their coronae. An X-ray flare was recently detected on the brown dwarf LP944-20, whereas previous searches for optical activity (and one X-ray search) yielded negative results. Here we… Expand
Radio Constraints on Activity in Young Brown Dwarfs
We report on searches for radio emission from three of the nearest known young brown dwarfs using the Very Large Array. We have obtained sensitive upper limits on 3.6 cm emission from 2MASSWExpand
Radio Emission from Ultra-Cool Dwarfs
The 2001 discovery of radio emission from ultra-cool dwarfs (UCDs), the very low-mass stars and brown dwarfs with spectral types of ~M7 and later, revealed that these objects can generate andExpand
QUASI-QUIESCENT RADIO EMISSION FROM THE FIRST RADIO-EMITTING T DWARF
Radio detections of ultracool dwarfs provide insight into their magnetic fields and the dynamos that maintain them, especially at the very bottom of the main sequence, where other activity indicatorsExpand
X-ray emission from a brown dwarf in the Pleiades
We report on the first detection of X-ray emission from a brown dwarf in the Pleiades, the M7-type Roque 14, obtained using the EPIC detectors on XMM‐Newton. This is the first X-ray detection of aExpand
The Magnetic Properties of an L Dwarf Derived from Simultaneous Radio, X-Ray, and Hα Observations
We present the first simultaneous, multiwavelength observations of an L dwarf, the L3.5 candidate brown dwarf 2MASS J00361617+1821104, conducted with the Very Large Array, the Chandra X-RayExpand
A radio-pulsing white dwarf binary star
TLDR
The discovery is reported of a white dwarf/cool star binary that emits from X-ray to radio wavelengths and the spin-down power is an order of magnitude larger than that seen in electromagnetic radiation, which suggests that AR Sco is primarily spin-powered. Expand
STEADY AND TRANSIENT RADIO EMISSION FROM ULTRACOOL DWARFS
We present the results of multi-frequency radio observing campaigns designed to elucidate the nature of radio emission from very low mass stars. We detect radio emission in an additional two epochsExpand
TRENDS IN ULTRACOOL DWARF MAGNETISM. I. X-RAY SUPPRESSION AND RADIO ENHANCEMENT
Although ultracool dwarfs (UCDs) are now known to generate and dissipate strong magnetic fields, a clear understanding of the underlying dynamo is still lacking. We have performed X-ray and radioExpand
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
Coronal X-Ray Emission from an Intermediate-Age Brown Dwarf
We report the X-ray detection of the brown dwarf (BD) companion TWA 5B in an 12 Myr old pre-main-sequence binary system. We clearly resolve the faint companion (35 photons) separated from the X-rayExpand
