The measurement of the antenna when tracking the Sun was made by the Antenna Group (NRAO, Tucson, USA).
Mechanical Measurements of the ALMA Prototype Antennas
As has been noted previously for the Tucson and AMES models, Teff variations are significant in the wings of the H band peak and in the peak of the K -band.
Fifteen new T dwarfs discovered in the UKIDSS Large Area Survey
By comparison the Tucson models also exhibit some Y -band variation with Teff, but in the opposite sense to that of the BT-Settl models, and the AMES models show little variation with Teff (Leggett et al. 2007).
Fifteen new T dwarfs discovered in the UKIDSS Large Area Survey
However, this effect is not predicted by the Tucson or AMES models (with both models showing an increase in flux for lower gravity), and this trend is thus ambiguous when taking all models into consideration.
Fifteen new T dwarfs discovered in the UKIDSS Large Area Survey
However, note that the Tucson and AMES models (which show no significant Y -band gravity sensitivity) could invoke an increase in metallicity to explain this Y -band suppression.
