Magnetic lenses have been developed for neutron beam transport. When the spin is parallel to the magnetic field, the neutron beam is focused by a sextupole magnet due to the magnetic dipole moment of the neutrons. On the other hand, the rest of the neutron beam is defocused. We are developing a powerful permanent magnet type sextupole lens which enables focal length modulation in synchronization with TOF. The status of the development research will be presented.
