A few years ago a high-pressure neutron spectrometer DN-12 was created at the IBR-2 pulsed reactor. Neutron diffraction and inelastic incoherent neutron scattering (with samples having large incoherent neutron scattering cross section) experiments at pressures up to 5 GPa can be performed with the DN-12 using sapphire anvil cells. After first successful experiments, the development of the DN-12 spectrometer was done during last year. The new parameters and recent experiments performed with the DN-12 both before and after modernization are reviewed.
