The R&D ERL project at BNL aims to demonstrate a high charge, high current energy recovery linac. One of the key SRF system is the 704 MHz half-cell SRF gun. The SRF gun is designed to deliver up to 0.5 A beam at 2 MeV with 1 MW of CW RF power. The gun commissioning started in November 2012. The first photoemission beam from the SRF gun is expected in early 2013. This presentation will discuss the results of the SRF gun commissioning, and the performance of the high-power RF system.
