The nearby edge-on galaxy NGC 5907 is subject to ongoing investigation
since several years. It is a non-interacting and relatively inactive
galaxy, classified as Sc.
Here we present new observations of this interesting galaxy at several
wavelenghts in the radio range:
- Radio continuum emission (including polarization) at 2.8 and 20cm, observed with the
Effelsberg 100m telescope and the Very Large Array, respectively.
- Continuum emission at a wavelength of 1.2mm, observed with the MPIfR 19-channel bolometer
installed in the secondary focus of the 30m telescope on Pico Veleta.
- Line emission from the 12CO(1-0) and (2-1) lines, observed also with the 30m telescope.
First results of these observations are shown. Additionally we discuss the
properties of this galaxy in comparison to other edge-on spirals.
