In this paper we discuss linear colliders in the TeV energy region, based on a two beam accelerator scheme. The low energy beam is used in a Free Electron Laser to produce short wavelength radiation, in the range from one cm to a fraction of a mm. The energy lost by this beam is restored by a superconducting linac. The short wavelength radiation is fed to a high frequency, linac-type structure, where the high energy beam is accelerated. We give a review of the scaling laws for a linear collider and use them to find some possible set of parameters for our system. We then discuss some of the accelerator technical problems and the beam physics problems encountered in the design of such a system.
