In polarized neutron experiments, it is interested in expanding measurable neutron energy region up to epithermal neutrons. For realizing this situation, a Polarized $$^{3}$$He Spin Flipper (PHSF) has a key role because it can polarize from cold to epithermal neutrons, and flip neutron spins by flipping the $$^{3}$$He nuclear spin direction. We have developed the portable PHSF consisting of a cylindrical glass cell filled with $$^{3}$$He gas which is installed a solenoid coil of 20 cm in diameter and 30 cm long. After polarizing the $$^{3}$$He gas by irradiating a laser light based on a SEOP technique, the PHSF is brought by hands to experimental areas with kept its polarization. We carried out the feasibility test on our portable PHSF in the MLF of J-PARC and demonstrated it worked well by evaluating flipping ratios of polarized neutrons and attempting to visualize magnetic fields generated by sample coils.
