In polarized proton operation, the RHIC performance is limited by the head-on beam-beam effect. To overcome these limitations two electron lenses were installed and are under commissioning. One lens uses a newly manufactured superconducting solenoid, in the other lens the spare superconducting solenoid of the BNL Electron Beam Ion Source is installed to allow for propagation of the electron beam. (This spare magnet will be replaced by the same type of superconducting magnet that is also used in the other lens during the 2013 shut-down.) We give an overview of the commissioning configuration of both lenses, and report on first results in commissioning the hardware and electron beam. We also report on lattice modifications needed to adjust the phase advance between the beam-beam interactions and the electron lenses, as well as upgrades to the proton instrumentation for the commissioning.

  We conduct proof-of-the-principle experiment of coherent electron cooling (CEC), which has a potential to significantly boost luminosity of high-energy, high-intensity hadron colliders. In this paper, we present the progress with experimental equipment including the first tests of the electron gun and the magnetic measurements of the wiggler prototype. We describe current design status as well as near future plans.

In the 2012 RHIC heavy ion run, we collided 96.4~GeV U-U ions and 100~GeV Cu-Au ions for the first time in RHIC. The new pre-injector with the electron-beam ion source (EBIS) was used to provide ions for RHIC ion collisions for the first time. By adding the horizontal cooling, the powerful 3-D stochastic cooling largely enhanced the luminosity. With the double bunch merging in the Booster and AGS, the bunch intensities of Cu and Au ions in RHIC surpassed their projections. Both PHENIX and STAR detectors reached their integrated luminosity goals for the U-U and Cu-Au collisions. In this article we review the machine improvement and performance in this run.
