The discovery of the Higgs boson at the LHC, together so far with the absence of any phenomena beyond the Standard Model in collisions at center of mass energies up to 8 TeV, has triggered an interest in future colliders to push the energy and precision frontiers in the search of New Physics. The great potential of high-energy hadron colliders to discover new particles and new phenomena are well-known, but now there is a strong scientific case for an electron-positron ($e^{+}e^{-}$) collider performing high precision studies of the Higgs boson and other known particles.

One of the Future Circular Collider (FCC) design study, FCC-$e^{+}e^{-}$, is a high-luminosity, high-precision $e^{+}e^{-}$ collider located in the same tunnel as a possible precursor to the hadron collider FCC-hh, and complementary to it. Delivering $e^{+}e^{-}$ center-of-mass collision energies between 90 and at least 350 GeV, FCC-$e^{+}e^{-}$ will be sensitive to possible new phenomena at energies measured in tens of TeV.

In addition to $e^{+}e^{-}$ program, the FCC will provide a unique opportunity to study $gamma gamma$ interactions at high energies and luminosities. $gamma gamma$ effective luminosities using the equivalent photon approximation (EPA) fluxes are explored for the Higgs, as well as for the exclusive W pair, production.
