We analyze these light curves together with the previously published IC-band light curve and radial velocities to provide refined measurements of the system's physical parameters. The component masses and radii are here determined with an accuracy of ∼6.5% and ∼1.5%, respectively. In addition, we confirm the previous surprising finding that the primary brown dwarf has a cooler effective temperature than its lower mass companion. Our analysis reveals two low-amplitude (∼0.02mag) periodic signals, one attributable to the rotation of the primary with a period of 3.293±0.001d and the other to the rotation of the secondary with a period of 14.05±0.05d. Both periods are consistent with the measured vsin i and radii. Description: The observations of 2MASS J05352184-0546085 presented in this paper were taken in the 2MASS near-infrared bands JHKS from 2003 October to 2006 April at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Chile. They were observed with the SMARTS 1.3m telescope using the ANDICAM instrument which allows for simultaneous optical and infrared imaging (the optical measurements have been reported in Paper I (Stassun et al. 2006Natur.440..311S) and Paper II (Stassun et al. Cat. J/ApJ/664/1154). The integration times were typically of 490s.
