Spectroscopy of planetary mass brown dwarfs in Orion

Abstract:

We report the results of near infrared spectroscopy of 11 luminosity-selected candidate planetary mass objects (PMOs) in the Trapezium Cluster with Gemini South/Gemini Near-Infrared Spectrograph and Gemini North/Near-Infrared Imager. Six have spectral types ≥M9, in agreement with expectations for PMOs. Two have slightly earlier types, and three are much earlier types which are probably field stars. Four of the six sources with types ≥M9 have pseudo-continuum profiles which confirm them as low...
