The photon collider at ILC: Status, parameters and technical problems
This paper is the second part of my overview on photon colliders given at the conference "The photon: its first hundred years and the future" (PHOTON2005 + PLC2005). The first; paper V.I. Tohov, The photon colliders: the first 25 years, proceedings of PHOTON2005 and PLC2005, Warsaw and Kazimierz, Poland, 30 August-4 September 2005, volume I, describes the first 25 years of the history and evolution of photon colliders. The present paper considers the photon collider at the I.LC: possible parameters, technical problems and present status.
