We have obtained low-resolution optical (0.7–0.98 μm) and near-infrared (1.11–1.34 μm and 0.8–2.5 μm) spectra of 12 isolated planetary-mass candidates (J = 18.2–19.9 mag) of the 3 Myr σ Orionis star cluster with the aim of determining the spectroscopic properties of very young, substellar dwarfs and assembling a complete cluster mass function. We have classified our targets by visual comparison with high- and low-gravity standards and by measuring newly defined spectroscopic indices. We derived… 
Stars and brown dwarfs in the σ Orionis cluster
Context. Only a few open clusters are as important for the study of stellar and substellar objects, and their formation and evolution, as the young σ Orionis cluster. However, a complete
A SURVEY FOR NEW MEMBERS OF TAURUS FROM STELLAR TO PLANETARY MASSES.
TLDR
A large sample of new members of the Taurus star-forming region that extend from stellar to planetary masses are presented, using color-magnitude diagrams and proper motions measured with several wide-field optical and infrared surveys to identify candidate members at substellar masses.
New Candidates for Planetary-mass Brown Dwarfs in IC 348
TLDR
Infrared images obtained with the Wide Field Camera 3 on board the Hubble Space Telescope are used to search for planetary-mass brown dwarfs in the star-forming cluster IC 348 and identify 12 objects that have colors indicative of spectral types later than M8, corresponding to masses of 30 M Jup at the age of IC 348.
USco1621 B and USco1556 B: Two wide companions at the deuterium-burning mass limit in Upper Scorpius
Aims. Our objective is to identify analogues of gas giant planets, but located as companions at wide separations of very young stars. The main purpose is to characterise the binarity frequency and
A rich population of free-floating planets in the Upper Scorpius young stellar association
The nature and origin of free-floating planets (FFPs) are still largely unconstrained because of a lack of large homogeneous samples to enable a statistical analysis of their properties. So far, most
The VVV open cluster project. Near-infrared sequences of NGC 6067, NGC 6259, NGC 4815, Pismis 18, Trumpler 23, and Trumpler 20
Open clusters are central elements of our understanding of the Galactic disk evolution, as an accurate determination of their parameters leads to an unbiased picture of our Galaxy’s structure.
A Review on Substellar Objects below the Deuterium Burning Mass Limit: Planets, Brown Dwarfs or What?
“Free-floating, non-deuterium-burning, substellar objects” are isolated bodies of a few Jupiter masses found in very young open clusters and associations, nearby young moving groups, and in the
History of globulettes in the Milky Way
Globulettes are small (radii <10${<} 10$ kAU) dark dust clouds, seen against the background of bright nebulae. A majority of the objects have planetary mass. These objects may be a source of brown
Spectral library of age-benchmark low-mass stars and brown dwarfs
In recent years, some extremely red brown dwarfs have been discovered. They were believed to have a low surface gravity, but many of their spectral characteristics are similar to those of

We present CFHT photometry and IRTF spectroscopy of low-mass candidate members of Serpens South and Serpens Core (∼430 pc, ∼0.5 Myr), identified using a novel combination of photometric filters,
