J/A+A/515/A75  Low-mass population in ρ Oph cloud (Alves de Oliveira+, 2010)

The low-mass population of the rho Ophiuchi molecular cloud. Alves de Oliveira C., Moraux E., Bouvier J., Bouy H., Marmo C., Albert L. <Astron. Astrophys. 515, A75 (2010)> =2010A&A...515A..75A
ADC_Keywords: Molecular clouds ; YSOs ; Photometry, infrared ; Photometry, millimetric/submm Keywords: stars: formation - stars: low-mass - brown-dwarf - planetary system Abstract: Star formation theories are currently divergent regarding the fundamental physical processes that dominate the substellar regime. Observations of nearby young open clusters allow the brown dwarf (BD) population to be characterised down to the planetary mass regime, which ultimately must be accommodated by a successful theory. We used near-IR deep images (reaching completeness limits of approximately 20.5mag in J, and 18.9mag in H and Ks taken with the Wide Field IR Camera (WIRCam) at the Canada France Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) to identify candidate members of ρ Oph in the substellar regime. A spectroscopic follow-up of a small sample of the candidates allows us to assess their spectral type, and subsequently their temperature and membership. We select 110 candidate members of the ρ Ophiuchi molecular cloud, from which 80 have not previously been associated with the cloud. We observed a small sample of these and spectroscopically confirm six new brown dwarfs with spectral types ranging from M6.5 to M8.25. Description: List of the substellar candidate members in ρ Ophiuchi identified with our near-IR survey. If available, the following information is also provided, optical and/or mid-IR photometry, spectral type and Av as determined from this study, photometric properties such as detection of IR excess, and references for the sources previously associated with the cluster in the literature.
