The power densities that liquid metal cooling is capable of are explored. The advantages of liquid metals over conventional water cooling are shown. The presentation is such that one can choose between the available coolants for any particular application with a minimum of background. The work done at the General Electric Research Laboratory in developing a vacuum tube anode capable of handling 5 kw/cm2 is covered.
