Turkish Accelerator Center Infrared Free Electron Laser and Bremsstrahlung (TAC IR FEL&Brems.) project aims to produce cw mode FEL in 2.5-250 microns range and to produce bremsstrahlung photons using 15-40 MeV electron beam. The project is supported by State Planning Organization (SPO) of Turkey and is proceeded with inter university collaboration under the coordination of Ankara University. This facility is now called Turkish Accelerator and Radiation Laboratory at Ankara (TARLA) since its building located at Golbasi town 15 km south of Ankara, Turkey. It is proposed that the facility will consist of 300 keV thermionic DC gun, two superconducting RF module and two optical resonator systems with 25 and 90 mm period lengths. In this study, the status and road map of the project is presented including some technical details on accelerator and FEL. In addition the research potential of facility is summarized.
