We present two new late-type brown dwarf candidate members of the TW Hydrae association (TWA): 2MASS J12074836-3900043 and 2MASS J12474428-3816464, which were found as part of the BANYAN all-sky survey (BASS) for brown dwarf members of nearby young associations. We obtained near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy for both objects (NIR spectral types are respectively L1 and M9), as well as optical spectroscopy for J1207-3900 (optical spectral type is L0γ), and show that both display clear signs of low…

The BANYAN All-Sky Survey for Brown Dwarf Members of Young Moving Groups
Abstract We describe in this work the BASS survey for brown dwarfs in young moving groups of the solar neighborhood, and summarize the results that it generated. These include the discovery of the
BANYAN. VII. A New Population of Young Substellar Candidate Members of Nearby Moving Groups from the BASS Survey
[Abbreviated] We present the results of a near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopic follow-up survey of 182 M4-L7 low-mass stars and brown dwarfs (BDs) from the BANYAN All-Sky Survey (BASS) for candidate
Population Properties of Brown Dwarf Analogs to Exoplanets
We present a kinematic analysis of 152 low surface gravity M7-L8 dwarfs by adding 8 parallaxes, 38 radial velocities, and 19 proper motions. We find 39 objects to be high-likelihood or bona fide
Discovery of a brown dwarf companion to the star HIP 64892
We report the discovery of a bright, brown dwarf companion to the star HIP 64892, imaged with VLT/SPHERE during the SHINE exoplanet survey. The host is a B9.5V member of the Lower-Centaurus-Crux
BANYAN. VIII. New Low-Mass Stars and Brown Dwarfs with Candidate Circumstellar Disks
We present the results of a search for new circumstellar disks around low-mass stars and brown dwarfs with spectral types >K5 that are confirmed or candidate members of nearby young moving groups.
An ALMA Survey for Disks Orbiting Low-Mass Stars in the TW Hya Association
We have carried out an ALMA survey of 15 confirmed or candidate low-mass (<0.2M$_\odot$) members of the TW Hya Association (TWA) with the goal of detecting molecular gas in the form of CO emission,
BANYAN. V. A Systematic All-Sky Survey for New Very Late-Type Low-Mass Stars and Brown Dwarfs in Nearby Young Moving Groups
We present the BANYAN All-Sky Survey (BASS) catalog, consisting of 228 new late-type (M4-L6) candidate members of nearby young moving groups (YMGs) with an expected false-positive rate of ~ 13%. This
REFINING THE CENSUS OF THE UPPER SCORPIUS ASSOCIATION WITH GAIA.
TLDR
The census of stars and brown dwarfs in the Upper Sco association is refined and it is indicated that Upper Sco is a factor of two younger than the β Pic association according to both non-magnetic and magnetic evolutionary models.
BANYAN. VI. Discovery of a Companion at the Brown Dwarf/Planet-Mass Limit to a Tucana?Horologium M Dwarf
We report the discovery of a substellar companion to 2MASS J02192210?3925225, a young M6 ? candidate member of the Tucana?Horologium association (30?40 Myr). This L4 ? companion has been discovered
A Survey for New Members of the Taurus Star-Forming Region with the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
Previous studies have found that ~1 deg2 fields surrounding the stellar aggregates in the Taurus star-forming region exhibit a surplus of solar-mass stars relative to denser clusters like IC~348 and

Discovery of a Very Young Field L Dwarf, 2MASS J01415823-4633574
TLDR
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.

TLDR
Investigating the near-infrared color magnitude diagram for brown dwarfs confirms that 2M0355 is redder and underluminous compared to the known brown dwarf population, similar to the peculiarities of directly imaged exoplanets 2M1207b and HR8799bcd.
