The recent proposals concerning the usage of the real polarized gamma beam, obtained by Compton backscattering of the laser photons off the electron beams from either the linear or circular accelerators were considered. The heavy quark photoproduction process, which gives a unique opportunity to measure the polarized gluon distribution, was investigated.
