K-H_2 Quasi-molecular absorption detected in the T-dwarf epsilon Indi Ba
By comparison with a high signal-to-noise optical spectrum of the T1 dwarf ε Indi Ba, we find that these new models do reproduce the observed feature, while CaH does not contribute for the atmospheric parameters considered.
K-H_2 Quasi-molecular absorption detected in the T-dwarf epsilon Indi Ba
FORS2 red optical spectrum of the T1 dwarf ε Indi Ba (solid), compared to our synthetic spectra for a 1.3 Gyr (dashed) and 2 Gyr (dotted) model.

K-H_2 Quasi-molecular absorption detected in the T-dwarf epsilon Indi Ba
The ε Indi Ba,b binary system is a unique test for brown dwarf models.
K-H_2 Quasi-molecular absorption detected in the T-dwarf epsilon Indi Ba
Based on their JHK photometry and H -band spectra, McCaughrean et al. (2004) obtained effective temperatures of 1276 K and 854 K for Ba and Bb, respectively, using the Baraffe et al. (2003) 1.3 Gyr Cond isochrone for the most likely age of the ε Indi AB system.
K-H_2 Quasi-molecular absorption detected in the T-dwarf epsilon Indi Ba
Indeed, the high (solar) abundance of CaH which would be required to generate absorption near this spectral location should only be found deep in the optically-thick atmosphere at the T eff =1280 K of ε Indi Ba, preventing its bands from appearing in spectra even assuming a clearing of the surface cloud coverage.

Lemma 10.3 (INDY) HΛ (Aω ) is measurable with respect to ω ∈ Ω, the Hamiltonian HΛl (x)(Aω ) is stationary in x ∈ Z2 in the sense of (A.5), and |RΛ (Aω , z )(x, y )| for x, y ∈ Λ and |RΛ′ (Aω , z )(x′ , y ′ )| for x′ , y ′ ∈ Λ′ are independent for disjoint suitable squares Λ and Λ′ with dist(Λ, Λ′ ) ≥ cδ .
