Abstract (from CDS):

We report the detection of a compact (∼5 arcsec; about 1800 au projected size) CO outflow from L1148-IRS. This confirms that this Spitzer source is physically associated with the nearby ( ≈ 325 pc) L1148 dense core. Radiative transfer modelling suggests an internal luminosity of 0.08 to 0.13 L. This validates L1148-IRS as a Very Low Luminosity Object (VeLLO; L ≤ 0.1 L). The L1148 dense core has unusually low densities and column densities for a star-forming core. It is difficult to understand how L1148-IRS might have formed under these conditions. Independent of the exact final mass of this VeLLO (which is likely <0.24 M), L1148-IRS and similar VeLLOs might hold some clues about the isolated formation of brown dwarfs.

Based on observations with the IRAM 30-m telescope and the IRAM Plateau de Bure Interferometer.
