The five ac dipole design of RHIC spin flipper in the Blue ring was first commissioned during the RHIC 2012 polarized proton operation. The advantage of this design is to eliminate the vertical coherent betatron oscillations outside the spin flipper*. Spin flipping efficiency was measured with both 100 GeV and 250 GeV polarized proton beams. This paper presents the latest commissioning results.

In polarized proton operation, the RHIC performance is limited by the head-on beam-beam effect. To overcome these limitations two electron lenses are under construction. We give an overview of the progress over the last year. Guns, collectors and the warm electron beam transport solenoids with their associated power supplies have been constructed. The superconducting solenoids that guide the electron beam during the interaction with the proton beam are near completion. A test stand has been set up to verify the performance of gun, collector and some of the instrumentation. The RHIC infrastructure is being prepared for installation, and simulations continue to optimize the performance.
