Super High Resolution Powder Diffractometer, SuperHRPD, is located at about 100 m from a thin side of a decoupled poisoned moderator at the Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility in the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex. The first neutron was produced successfully from a spallation neutron source in J-PARC in the end of May of 2008, and SuperHRPD has achieved the world best resolution Δd/d = 0.035% in June using the existing Sirius 1) chamber. In the summer of 2009, a new SuperHRPD chamber was installed aiming at increasing the detector solid angle and expanding d-range / Q-range, with at most 1500 one-dimensional 3He position-sensitive detectors of 1/2 inch in diameter. The on-beam commissioning of the new SuperHRPD was started in the autumn of 2009.
