A deep survey of brown dwarfs in Orion with Gemini

Abstract:

We report the results of a deep near-infrared (JHK) survey of the outer parts of the Trapezium Cluster with Gemini South/Flamingos. 396 sources were detected in a 26 arcmin 2 area, including 138 brown dwarf candidates, defined as M < 0.075 M ⊙ for an assumed age of 1 Myr. Only 33 of the brown dwarf candidates are planetary mass candidates with estimated masses in the range 0.003 < M < 0.012 M ⊙. In an extinction-limited sample (A v < 5) complete to approximately 0. 005 M ⊙ (5 M Ju...
