We present ground-based spectroscopic verification of 6 Y dwarfs (see also Cushing et al.), 89 T dwarfs, 8 L dwarfs, and 1 M dwarf identified by the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). Eighty of these are cold brown dwarfs with spectral types ⩾T6, six of which have been announced earlier by Mainzer et al. and Burgasser et al. We present color–color and color–type diagrams showing the locus of M, L, T, and Y dwarfs in WISE color space. Near-infrared and, in a few cases, optical spectra… 

Nearby M, L, and T Dwarfs Discovered by the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE)

In our effort to complete the census of low-mass stars and brown dwarfs in the immediate solar neighborhood, we present spectra, photometry, proper motions, and distance estimates for 42 low-mass

A STUDY OF THE DIVERSE T DWARF POPULATION REVEALED BY WISE

The substantial increase in the number of known late-type T dwarfs provides a population that will be used to test models of cold atmospheres and star formation and supports the possible re-emergence of clouds after the L/T transition.

The Y-Type Brown Dwarfs: Estimates of Mass and Age from New Astrometry, Homogenized Photometry and Near-Infrared Spectroscopy

The survey of the mid-infrared sky by the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) led to the discovery of extremely cold, low-mass brown dwarfs, classified as Y dwarfs, which extend the T class to

SPITZER PHOTOMETRY OF WISE-SELECTED BROWN DWARF AND HYPER-LUMINOUS INFRARED GALAXY CANDIDATES

We present Spitzer 3.6 and 4.5 μm photometry and positions for a sample of 1510 brown dwarf candidates identified by the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) all-sky survey. Of these, 166 have

New Y and T Dwarfs from WISE Identified by Methane Imaging

We identify new Y- and T-type brown dwarfs from the WISE All Sky data release using images obtained in filters that divide the traditional near-infrared H and J bands into two halves—specifically and

FURTHER DEFINING SPECTRAL TYPE “Y” AND EXPLORING THE LOW-MASS END OF THE FIELD BROWN DWARF MASS FUNCTION

We present the discovery of another seven Y dwarfs from the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). Using these objects, as well as the first six WISE Y dwarf discoveries from Cushing et al., we

A BROWN DWARF CENSUS FROM THE SIMP SURVEY

We have conducted a near-infrared (NIR) proper motion survey, the Sondage Infrarouge de Mouvement Propre, in order to discover field ultracool dwarfs (UCD) in the solar neighborhood. The survey was

Discovery of a Very Young Field L Dwarf, 2MASS J01415823–4633574

It is suggested that lithium becomes weaker at lower gravity like all other alkali lines and thus needs to be carefully considered before being used as a diagnostic of age or mass for objects in this regime.
