We present a list of 61 solar photospheric lines in the near-infrared H-band (1500 – 1800 nm), obtained by synthesis under the LTE approximation, and compute the corresponding velocity and temperature response functions (RF) in the line core and depth-integrated RFs as a function of wavelength. In particular, we computed the core formation heights and the ranges of atmospheric layers where thermodynamic perturbations are dominant. Moreover, we indicate the wavelength where the line is more sensitive to thermodynamic variations and quantify this sensitivity. This list is the extension of a previous work of Penza and Berrilli ( Solar Phys.277, 227, 2012 ).
