  We are developing Vertical Electro Polishing (VEP) system for niobium superconducting RF cavity at Cornell University. VEP has been successfully applied on different cell shapes (TESLA and Re-entrant), and single and multi-cell cavities. VEP achieved high gradient of 39MV/m with TESLA shape single cell and of 36MV/m with TESLA shape 9-cell, respectively. Preliminary results of R&D on VEPed cavities show removal dependence on cavity performance. Temperature oscillation asymmetry was also found during the VEP process. We will report these recent results and further R&D plan of Cornell VEP.
