Deep search for companions to probable young brown dwarfs: VLT/NACO adaptive optics imaging using IR wavefront sensing
Aims. We have obtained high contrast images of four nearby, faint, and very low mass objects 2MASS J04351455-1414468, SDSS J044337.61+000205.1, 2MASS J06085283-2753583 and 2MASS J06524851-5741376 (hereafter 2MASS0435-14, SDSS0443+00, 2MASS0608-27 and 2MASS0652-57), identified in the field as probable isolated young brown dwarfs. Our goal was to search for binary companions down to the planetary mass regime. Methods. We used the NAOS-CONICA adaptive optics instrument (NACO) and its unique...[Show more]
