Turkish Accelerator & Radiation Laboratory (TARLA)

  • TARLA_facility_big

The Turkish Accelerator Radiation Laboratory (TARLA) is a multi-purpose and multidisciplinary research facility to promote scientific and technical knowledge on accelerator science and serve researchers and industry “the-state-of-art” capabilities. It is located on the Gölbaşı Ankara University Campus near Ankara.

At TARLA, the linear electron accelerator, equipped with two beamlines and five experimental stations, generates an electron beam with a kinetic energy of up to 40 MeV. This beam is used for Free Electron Laser (FEL) light generation, Bremsstrahlung (gamma radiation) and secondary particle experiments. Furthermore, FEL light is also used in experiments coupled to Pump-Probe and SPM systems. TARLA’s light generation capability spans a wide spectral range from UV to Mid-IR, opening up new research avenues in light & material interaction.
