We have compiled L' (3.4?4.1 ?m) and M' (4.6?4.8 ?m) photometry of 63 single and binary M, L, and T dwarfs obtained at the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope using the Mauna Kea Observatory filter set. This compilation includes new L' measurements of eight L dwarfs and 13 T dwarfs and new M' measurements of seven L dwarfs, five T dwarfs, and the M1 dwarf Gl 229A. These new data increase by factors of 0.6 and 1.6, respectively, the numbers of ultracool dwarfs (Teff 2400 K) for which L' and M…

Spitzer IRAC Photometry of M, L, and T Dwarfs
We present the results of a program to acquire photometry for 86 late M, L, and T dwarfs using the Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) on the Spitzer Space Telescope. We examine the behavior of these cool
A Statistical Survey of Peculiar L and T Dwarfs in SDSS, 2MASS, and WISE
We present the final results from a targeted search for brown dwarfs with unusual near-infrared colors. From a positional cross-match of SDSS, 2MASS and WISE, we have identified 144 candidate

Photometry and Proper Motions of M, L, and T Dwarfs from the Pan-STARRS1 3π Survey
We present a catalog of 9888 M, L and T dwarfs detected in the Pan-STARRS1 3π Survey (PS1), covering three-quarters of the sky. Our catalog contains nearly all known objects of spectral types L0–T2
We present the discovery of 11 new T dwarfs, found during the course of a photometric survey for mid-to-late T dwarfs in the 2MASS Point Source Catalog and from a proper-motion-selected sample of

An Infrared Spectroscopic Sequence of M, L, and T Dwarfs*
We present a 0.6-4.1 ?m spectroscopic sequence of M, L, and T dwarfs. The spectra have R ? ?/?? ? 2000 from 0.9 to 2.4 ?m and R = 2500-200 from 2.9 to 4.1 ?m. These new data nearly double the number
