J/A+A/500/1045   Cool stars and brown dwarfs in Lupus clouds   (Comeron+, 2009)

A new population of cool stars and brown dwarfs in the Lupus clouds. Comeron F., Spezzi L., Lopez Marti B. <Astron. Astrophys., 500, 1045-1063 (2009)> =2009A&A...500.1045C
ADC_Keywords: Molecular clouds; Stars, pre-main sequence; Photometry, infrared Keywords: stars: low-mass, brown dwarfs - stars: formation - stars: pre-main sequence - ISM: individual objects: Lupus - ISM: clouds Abstract: Most studies of the stellar and substellar populations of star-forming regions rely on using the signatures of accretion, outflows, disks, or activity characterizing the early stages of stellar evolution. However, these signatures rapidly decay with time. We present the results of a wide-area study of the stellar population of clouds in the Lupus star-forming region. When combined with 2MASS photometry, our data allow us to fit the spectral energy distributions of over 150000 sources and identify possible new members based on their photospheric fluxes, independent of any display of the signposts of youth. Description: We used the Wide Field Imager (WFI) at the La Silla 2.2m telescope to image an area of more than 6 square degrees in the Lupus 1, 3 and 4 clouds in the Rc, Ic, and zWFI bands, selected so as to overlap with the areas observed in the Spitzer Legacy Program "From molecular cores to planet-forming disks". We complement our data with 2MASS photometry to sample the spectral energy distribution from 0.6um to 2.2um. File Summary:
