The international Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment aims to demonstrate the transverse cooling of amuon beam by ionization in energy absorbers. The final MICE cooling channel configuration has two RF modules, each housing a 201 MHz RF cavity used to compensate the longitudinal energy loss in the absorbers. The LBNL team has designed and fabricated all MICE RF cavities. The cavities will be post-processed and RF measured before being installed in the RF modules. We present the recent progress
