The SCRIT electron scattering facility has been constructed at the RIKEN RI Beam Factory. The commissioning experiment was performed and the properties of the ion trapping were studied. The first electron elastic scattering experiment of 132Xe was performed and the charge density distribution was obtained. The achieved luminosity in the experiment was 1:8×1027 cm-2 s-1 with a 250 mA electron beam current and the injection of 108 ions. The production of unstable nuclei has been started with a new online isotope separator (ISOL) system at the SCRIT facility, and developments of the ISOL system for increasing rates of unstable nuclei are underway. Electron scattering with unstable nuclei will be performed in the near future.
