IBARAKI Biological Crystal Diffractometer is a new single-crystal neutron diffractometer for biological and chemical crystallography, and is now being constructed at J-PARC by Ibaraki Prefectural Government in Japan. This diffractometer is designed for the protein crystals with the cell dimension up to 135AA. The measurement efficiency is more than 50 times larger than the present neutron diffractometer, BIX-3/BIX-4 in JRR-3 reactor at JAEA. To achieve this performance, we have selected a coupled moderator, and worked out the optimisation of the neutron guide tube. For the detector, a new wavelength-shifting-fiber type scintillation area detector system with high spatial (0.5-1.0mm) and time (1ms-) resolution are in development.
