Probing the bottom end of the IMF in orion with Gemini

Abstract:

We present very deep JHK imaging of the Trapezium Cluster obtained with Gemini South/Flamingos and Gemini North/Hokupa'a.

Several very faint new planetary mass candidates are detected and sources previously detected with UKIRT are verified. Photometry of 124 point sources in this field produces a Luminosity Function which. drops to zero at K=18.75. Allowing. for modest extinction this corresponds ...
