Abstract. Spatial information from stellar X-ray coronae cannot be assessed directly, but scaling laws from the solar corona
make it possible to estimate sizes of stellar coronae from the physical parameters temperature and density. While coronal plasma
temperatures have long been available, we concentrate on the newly available density measurements from line fluxes of X-ray
lines measured for a large sample of stellar coronae with the Chandra and XMM-Newton gratings. We compiled a set of 64
