POLANO is a newly constructed chopper spectrometer for polarization analysis in J-PARC. Its construction is almost complete, even though a few upgrades, the tuning, and R&D of some devices and the beam line are still pending. After radiation assessments, POLANO has been approved as a proper neutron beam line and the beam commissioning process will commence soon. Our primary objective is to achieve higher-energy polarization analysis of inelastic scattering beyond a reactor-based neutron source up to 100 meV, with medium (reasonable) resolution. The other devices, such as spin filter polarizer and magnetic system are currently under development.
