" Young Planet-Mass Objects in Taurus "

Po-Shih Chiang


We present the recent results of our W-band survey with CFHT/WIRCam. Substellar candidates were selected with the reddening-insensitive index 'Q', which is derived from J-, H-, and W-band photometry. We tested the Q index with a sample of substellar objects and stars in IC348 and Taurus and found the accuracy to be better than 75%. Using the Q index alone, two new L-type objects in Serpens have been confirmed in spectroscopic followup this July. More candidates in Taurus are going to be observed with IRTF follow up in the end of December. The spectra of observed candidates will also be presented in this talk.

Seminars are also held at JAC, CFHT, and IfA.
