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.

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.
