We discover that the very low-mass brown dwarf OTS 44 (M9.5, similar to 12 M-Jup) has significant accretion and a substantial disk, which demonstrates that the processes that accompany canonical star formation occur down to a central mass of a few Jupiter masses. We discover in VLT/SINFONI spectra that OTS 44 has strong, broad, and variable Pa beta emission that is evidence for active accretion at the planetary border. We also detect strong Ha emission of OTS 44 in a literature spectrum and…

First Millimeter Detection of the Disk around a Young, Isolated, Planetary-mass Object

OTS44 is one of only four free-floating planets known to have a disk. We have previously shown that it is the coolest and least massive known free-floating planet (∼12 ) with a substantial disk that

ALMA Discovery of a Disk around the Planetary-mass Companion SR 12 c

We report an Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array 0.88 mm (Band 7) continuum detection of the accretion disk around SR 12 c, an ∼11 M Jup planetary-mass companion (PMC) orbiting its host

Erratum: Accretion signatures in the X-shooter spectrum of the substellar companion to SR12

About a dozen substellar companions orbiting young stellar objects or pre-main sequence stars at several hundred au have been identified in the last decade. These objects are interesting both due to

VARIABILITY IN A YOUNG, L/T TRANSITION PLANETARY-MASS OBJECT

As part of our ongoing NTT SoFI survey for variability in young free-floating planets and low-mass brown dwarfs, we detect significant variability in the young, free-floating planetary-mass object

Strong Hα emission and signs of accretion in a circumbinary planetary mass companion from MUSE

Context. Intrinsic Hα emission can be advantageously used to detect substellar companions because it improves contrasts in direct imaging. Characterising this emission from accreting exoplanets

AN ALMA CONSTRAINT ON THE GSC 6214-210 B CIRCUM-SUBSTELLAR ACCRETION DISK MASS

We present Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) observations of GSC 6214-210 A and B, a solar-mass member of the 5–10 Myr Upper Scorpius association with a 15 ± 2 MJup companion

Herschel/PACS view of disks around low-mass stars and brown dwarfs in the TW Hydrae association

We conducted Herschel/PACS observations of five very low-mass stars or brown dwarfs located in the TW Hya association with the goal of characterizing the properties of disks in the low stellar mass

A homogeneous analysis of disks around brown dwarfs

We re-analyzed the Herschel/PACS data of a sample of 55 brown dwarfs (BDs) and very low mass stars with spectral types ranging from M5.5 to L0. We investigated the dependence of disk structure on the

ACCRETION ONTO PLANETARY MASS COMPANIONS OF LOW-MASS YOUNG STARS

Measurements of accretion rates onto planetary mass objects may distinguish between different planet formation mechanisms, which predict different accretion histories. In this Letter, we use Hubble

The VLT/NaCo large program to probe the occurrence of exoplanets and brown dwarfs at wide orbits. III. The frequency of brown dwarfs and giant planets as companions to solar-type stars

In recent years there have been many attempts to characterize the occurrence of stellar, BD and planetary-mass companions to solar-type stars, with the aim of constraining formation mechanisms. From
