Figure 5. ey - ey scattering at fee = 500 GeV
a) Differential cross-section d-/dq for the SM
(dashed line) and for ANC = 500 GeV (a - y -
r/2). The expected statistical uncertainties are
also shown. b) Ratio of the differential cross-
sections d-/d cos O for NCQFT and for the SM.
limit from e+e- scattering is ANC > 142 GeV at
95% confidence level .
A theoretical analysis has been performed of
the processes yy - ff and ey - ey for Lee =
500 fb-1. A transverse momentum greater than
10 GeV and a polar angle in the range 100 <
O < 1700 has been required for the final state
In Fig. 5 the NCQFT effects on the angular
distributions of the final state photons in ey - ey
scattering are shown. The parameters a and y are
related to the Maxwell field tensor . Significant
deviations from the SM can be observed.
Studies of various Higgs scenarios show that a
Photon Collider has a unique potential for Higgs
boson physics over a wide range of masses and
model parameters. Excellent b-tagging and good
energy resolution are very important for the Pho-
ton Collider to suppress background. The ey op-
tion of the Photon Collider is complementary to
the e+e- Linear Collider in discovering effects
from Non-Commutative Field Theories. Many
other topics which can be studied at a Photon
Collider (e.g. SUSY, Leptoquarks, QCD) had to
be omitted in this short summary.
