The new Spitzer Space Telescope will do the same for T Tauri stars and Brown Dwarfs.
Dust coagulation in protoplanetary disks: a rapid depletion of small grains
These are separable from the rest of the sample though as giants have a very red 2MASS ( J − K ) colour; Brown [2003] show that stars with ( J − K ) ≥ 0.5 are most likely giants, while we find that using limit of ( J − K ) ≤ 1.26 removes the M8-10iii stars that do not fit the linear trend while keeping other stars.
Characterisation of candidate members of (136108) Haumea's family
The presence of three (possibly four) optical detections amongst the 18 sources which satisfy the IRAC color selection criteria shows that those criteria do not produce a pure brown dwarf sample, and suggests that additional AGN /DOGs may have scattered into the brown dwarf selection region.
Ultracool Field Brown Dwarf Candidates Selected at 4.5 microns
With the finding that sources hotter than T6 do not contribute appreciably, and the reliability estimate, this implies that the true population of cool brown dwarfs meeting the selection criteria is between 6 and 12.
Ultracool Field Brown Dwarf Candidates Selected at 4.5 microns
Our detection limits do not access the star environment close enough to fully exclude the presence of a brown dwarf or a massive planet within the disk inner activity (i.e at less than 30 AU).
Searching for sub-stellar companion into the LkCa15 proto-planetary disk
Previous 1.7 GHz MERLIN maps shown at full resolution (Browne & Orr 1981; Akujor et al. 1994) do not clearly show knot B, but we clearly detect this feature in our new image.

When this expression is evaluated, a sign of (−1)i is produced by the Koszul sign rule. (See Definition 2.1 below.) Brown also assumed that A has an augmentation, which we do not require.

We do know that if you keep reducing the mass, you eventually end up with “rocks” or “snowballs”, and that if you keep increasing the mass you end up with “brown dwarfs” and then “stars”.

One question is whether the central object has to be a star, or whether a brown dwarf (or neutron star) will do; most people seem willing to include all objects capable of fusion.
Planetesimals To Brown Dwarfs: What is a Planet?
These results beg the question: if brown dwarfs form as stars do, where are the earlier, embedded phases.

However, as with the continuity of accretion rates from stars to brown dwarfs, these results do not completely exclude some scenarios in which brown dwarfs form through a distinct mechanism.
