To search for new low-mass cluster members with disks, we have measured photometry for all sources in the Spitzer images and have identified the ones that have red colors that are indicative of disks. We present five promising candidates, which may consist of two brown dwarfs, two stars with edge-on disks, and a low-mass protostar if they are bona fide members. Spectroscopy is needed to verify the nature of these sources. We have also used the Spitzer data to determine which of the previously known probable members of σ Ori are likely to have disks. By doing so, we measure disk fractions of ∼40% and ∼60% for low-mass stars and brown dwarfs, respectively. Description: For our study of disks around brown dwarfs in the σ Ori cluster, we use images at 3.6, 4.5, 5.8, and 8.0um obtained with Spitzer's Infrared Array Camera (IRAC). The shallow IRAC images were collected on 2004 October 9 as a part of G. Fazio's IRAC Guaranteed Time Observations in Spitzer program 37 (Hernandez et al. 2007, Cat. J/ApJ/662/1067). The deep IRAC imaging was executed on 2006 September 28, 2007 March 30-31, and 2007 April 3-4 through Spitzer program 30395 (Scholz & Jayawardhana, 2008ApJ...672L..49S). File Summary:

Note (1): 2MASS identifications are from the 2MASS Point Source Catalog (Cat. II/246). IRAC identifications are based on J2000 coordinates measured with IRAC. Note (2): "SO" identifications are from Hernandez et al. (2007, Cat. J/ApJ/662/1067 ; <[HHM2007] NNNN> in Simbad). "S Ori" identifications are from Bejar et al. (1999ApJ...521..671B, 2001ApJ...556..830B); <[BZR99] S Ori NN> or <[BMZ2001] S Ori JHHMMSS.s+DDMMSS> in Simbad. Note (3): Measurement is absent because of the following: n = non-detection; o = position outside the field of view of the filter; s = saturated; b = contaminated by cosmic rays.
