Variability of L Dwarfs in the Near Infrared

  • José A. Caballero (a1), Víctor J. S. Béjar (a1) and Rafael Rebolo (a1) (a2)

Abstract

We have obtained series of images in the near infrared J and K s bands for seven L-type dwarfs with a duration of 3 to 6 hours. We present results on: 1) the amplitude of variability associated with atmospheric changes over time scales from minutes to several hours; 2) the search for cool companions in wide orbits; 3) the search for transits of brown dwarfs and planetary companions in very close orbits.
