Turkish Accelerator Complex (TAC) Infrared Free Electron Laser (IR-FEL) project was approved by State Planning Organization (SPO) of Turkey as a first step of the national complex project in 2006. The facility will consist of 15-40 MeV superconducting electron linac and two different optical cavity systems with different undulator period length to obtain FEL in 2-185 microns wavelengths range. In this study, the results of optimization and current status of TAC IR FEL facility project is presented. The facility will give opportunity to search applications in material science, biotechnology, nonlinear optics, semiconductors, medicine and chemistry using IR-FEL in Turkey and our region.
