  • Over a dozen ultracool dwarfs (UCDs), low-mass objects of spectral types $\geq$M7, are known to be sources of radio flares. These typically several-minutes-long radio bursts can be up to 100\% circularly polarized and have high brightness temperatures, consistent with coherent emission via the electron cyclotron maser operating in $\sim$kG magnetic fields. Recently, the statistical properties of the bulk physical parameters that describe these UCDs have become adequately described to permit… CONTINUE READING
