We study the potential of the gamma gamma option of future high-energy linear e(+)e(-) colliders to search for excited electrons with spin-1/2. We calculate single production cross sections and give the angular distributions and f - m* contour plots for root s = 0.5 TeV and root s = 3 TeV both using the standard (tree-level) couplings and anomal couplings.
