  • We have identified a sample of cool field brown dwarf candidates using IRAC data from the Spitzer Deep, Wide-Field Survey (SDWFS). The candidates were selected from 400,000 SDWFS sources with [4.5] ≤ 18.5 mag and were required to have [3.6] – [4.5] ≥ 1.5 and [4.5] – [8.0] ≤ 2.0 on the Vega system. The first color requirement selects objects redder than all but a handful of presently known brown dwarfs with spectral classes later than T7, while the second eliminates 14 probable reddened active… CONTINUE READING
