We present new Chandra observations of the low mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs) X1624−490, X1702−429, and X1715−321 and the search for their Infrared (IR) counterparts. We also report on early results from our dedicated IR survey of LMXBs. The goal of this program is to investigate whether IR counterparts can be identified through unique IR colors and to trace the origin of the IR emission in these systems.
