  • We present Spitzer 7.6-14.5 μm spectra of ULAS J003402.77–005206.7 and ULAS J133553.45+113005.2, two T9 dwarfs with the latest spectral types currently known. We fit synthetic spectra and photometry to the near- through mid-infrared energy distributions of these dwarfs and that of the T8 dwarf 2MASS J09393548–2448279. We also analyze near-infrared data for another T9, CFBD J005910.82–011401.3. We find that the ratio of the mid- to near-infrared fluxes is very sensitive to effective temperature… CONTINUE READING
