Abstract

Copyright © 2014 CC-BY-3.0 and by the respective authors.Turkish Accelerator Center (TAC) Project has started with support of the Ministry of Development (MD) of Turkey under the coordination of Ankara University. TAC is an inter-university collaboration with 12 Turkish Universities. An IR FEL facility (TARLA) based on Sc linac with 15-40 MeV energy under construction in Ankara as the first facility of TAC. It is expected that the TARLA facility will be commissioned in 2017. In addition to the TARLA, it is planned that Turkish Accelerator Center will include a third generation synchrotron radiation facility based on 3 GeV electron synchrotron (TAC SR), a fourth generation SASE FEL facility based on 3 GeV electron linac (TAC SASE FEL), a multi-purpose proton accelerator facility with 3 MeV - 2 GeV beam energy (TAC PAF) and an electron-positron collider as a super charm factory (TAC PF) Construction phase of the proposed GeV scale accelerator facilities will cover next decades. In this presentation, main goals and road map of Turkish Accelerator Center will be explained.
