Abstract Tevatron electron lenses have been successfully used to mitigate bunch-to-bunch differences caused by long-range beam-beam interactions. For this purpose the electron beam with uniform transverse density distribution was used. Another planned application of the electron lens is the suppression of tune spread due to head-on beam-beam collisions. For this purpose, the transverse distribution of e-beam must be matched to that of the antiproton beam. In 2009, the gaussian profile electron gun was installed in one of the Tevatron electron lenses. We report on the first experiments with non-linear beam-beam compensation. Discussed topics include measurement and control of the betatron tune spread, importance of the beam alignment and stability, and effect of the electron lens on the proton and antiproton beam lifetime.
