|Keck LRIS spectra of late-M, L and T dwarfs|
| ||These spectra were obtained between 1997 and 1999; they are all flux calibrated and generally span the wavelength range 6000-10,000 A. Spectral types are on the Kirkpatrick et al system as defined in Kirkpatrick et al ApJS, 77, 417 (1991 - for M dwarfs) and Kirkpatrick et al ApJ 519, 802 (1999 - L dwarfs). While not all of these stars are primary spectral standards, they are all bright and should provide an adequate reference sequence.
|Kesseli et al.|
| ||An empirical library of stellar spectra created using spectra from the Sloan Digital Sky
Survey’s Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS).
| ||~1000 stars spanning a large range in atmospheric parameters. The spectra were obtained at the 2.5m INT telescope and cover the range 3525-7500 Å at 2.5 Å (FWHM) spectral resolution
|The NIRSPEC Brown Dwarf Spectroscopic Survey|
| ||The Brown Dwarf Spectroscopic Survey (BDSS), established in 1998 by Dr. Ian McLean in collaboration with Dr. J. Davy Kirkpatrick at IPAC, is designed to study near-infrared moderate-to-high resolution spectra for a large sample of low-mass stars and sub-stellar mass objects in the M and newly defined L and T dwarf classes.
