Abstract
A description of a new 1-5 micron filter set for infrared photometry is presented. This new Mauna Kea Observatories near-infrared filter set is designed to reduce background noise, improve photometric transformations from observatory to observatory, provide greater accuracy in extrapolating to zero airmass, and reduce the color dependence in the extinction coefficient in photometric reductions. Through this effort we hope to establish a single standard set of infrared filters for ground-based astronomy. A complete technical description is presented to facilitate the production of similar filters in the future.
