Copyright © 2014 CC-BY-3.0 and by the respective authors.The Turkish Accelerator Center Proton Accelerator Facility (TAC PAF) is based on a 1 MW and 2-GeV proton linac that will include both normal conducting and superconducting accelerator structures. The normal conducting part of the TAC PAF will consist of an ion source, a low energy beam transport line, a radio frequency quadrupole, a medium energy beam transport line, and two drift tube linac structures in order to accelerate the beam up to 65 MeV. Acceleration from 65 MeV up to 2-GeV energy will be provided by a SC-spoke cavity and two SC-elliptical cavities. In the long term, TAC PAF will be used as a neutron source. We report the current status of the project including accelerator structures, ion source studies, and possible experimental stations.
