The variability and rotation of ultra cool dwarfs (UCDs) provide important information on the atmospheres and evolution of these very low mass stars and brown dwarfs. As part of an ongoing program to investigate this, the projected rotation velocities, v sini, derived from high resolution VLT/UVES spectroscopy via cross correlation are presented for 16 field UCDs (M9V-L7.5V). This doubles the number of L dwarfs for which v sini has been measured. All targets are found to have v sini between 10… Expand
