  • Content Description: The photon collider option requires the generation of large amounts of laser power to drive the Compton scattering. The selection of the superconducting RF for the baseline of the ILC makes a recirculating solution attractive. A baseline for a recirculating cavity for the photon collider has been developed by a team [1, 2] at DESY/Zeuthen and the Max Born Institute. Similar cavities at much lower scale are being developed for laser wire and Compton polarimeter applications. The current status of the laser technology and a proposal for future development are reviewed. The impact of the {gamma}{gamma} experiment on the accelerator and detector is also discussed.
