Title:  Searching for brown dwarfs in Chamaeleon

We present a survey for brown dwarfs in the Chamaeleon I star-forming region. Candidates were selected using proper motions and photometry obtained from a variety of telescopes and verified by limited spectroscopy. With our survey, we are able to measure the initial mass function of Chamaeleon down to 0.01 solar mass.
