The SCRIT (Self-Confining Radioactive-Isotope Ion Target) electron scattering facility has been constructed at the RIKEN RI Beam Factory. In the commissioning experiment, the ion-trapping properties of the SCRIT system were studied using stable ions. By using an electron spectrometer, the momentum transfer distribution of the electron elastic scattering of 132Xe was measured at 150, 200, and 300 MeV, and the charge density distribution was deduced. During the measurements, a luminosity of 1.8×1027 cm-2s-1 was achieved with a 250-mA electron beam and only 108 trapped ions. Production of RIs has begun in an electron-beam-driven RI separator, and developments are underway to increase the production rate of short-lived nuclei. Soon, measurements of electron elastic scattering by short-lived nuclei will be performed.
