We improved diamond anvil cells with a tubular frame made of Zr-based bulk metallic glass and nano-polycrystalline diamond anvils for single-crystal neutron diffraction. The thicker tubular frame was confirmed through experimentation as stably generating 4.5 GPa. Its feasibility for neutron diffraction was assessed at the Laue-TOF diffractometer at the BL18 (SENJU) beamline in the MLF J-PARC using time-resolved two-dimensional detectors covering wide solid angles. In addition to ambient-pressure measurements of NH$$_{4}$$Cl, diffraction patterns of a high-pressure phase of ice were also collected in-situ. The obtained intensities are of refinable quality sufficient for structure analysis.
