| 26 April 2007 The baseline design for the International Linear Collider (ILC) positron source is based on multi-MeV photons that produce pairs in a metallic target. The photons are created by the main electron beam passing through a helical undulator. The conventional method, positron generation via pair production using an electron beam, which is used as the positron source in all existing accelerators in the world, is adopted however as an alternative technology in the Baseline Configuration Document (BCD).
