Paper Abstract

Using the laser backscattering method at future TeV linear colliders one can obtain (gamma) (gamma) and (gamma) e colliding beams (photon colliders) with the energy and luminosity comparable to that in e+e- collisions. Now this option is included to conceptual designs of linear colliders. This paper is a short introduction to this field with an emphasis on required lasers which can be used both for eyields (gamma) conversion and for preparation of electron beams (photoguns, laser cooling), some interesting nonlinear QED effects in a strong field which apply restrictions on parameters of photon colliers are discussed.
