- We present spectroscopic mid-IR observations of prominent starburst galaxies obtained with the short wavelength spectrometer onboard the Infrared Space Observatory. The wavelength range accessible by ISO-sws (2.5-45 pm) contains a large number of emission lines of atomic and molecular hydrogen and several other atomic species. In this paper we discuss the interpretation of the [NeIII] 15.5 mum/[NeII] 12.8 mum line-ratio, the faint [OIV] 25.9 mum line and the pure rotational lines of molecular hydrogen observed in our target galaxies.
