dc.description.abstract We report on deep near-infrared (NIR)observations of submillimeter-selected galaxies (SMGs) with the Near-Infrared Camera (NIRC) on the Keck I telescope. We have identified K-band candidate counterparts for 12 out of 15 sources in the SCUBA Cluster Lens Survey. Three SMGs remain nondetections with K-band limits of K > 23 mag, corrected for lensing. Compensating for lensing, we find a median magnitudeof K = 22 ± 1 mag for the SMG population, but the range of NIR flux densities spans more than a factor of 400. en_US
