World leading instruments for materials research...

For more than half a century, the CAMECA instruments have served scientific discovery and supported industrial innovation in material sciences. Instruments like the SXFive electron probe microanalyzers, our magnetic sector SIMS IMS 7f-Auto and NanoSIMS 50L, our quadrupole ion microprobe SIMS 4550 and our 3D Atom Probe LEAP 5000 have been widely used in metallurgy (coatings, multilayers, segregation, corrosion, contamination, precipitates, light elements...), ceramics and glasses, composite materials... New applications include the optimization of PV cells. Shielded instruments like the Shielded EPMA and the IMS 7fR are specifically designed and customized for the analysis of radioactive samples.
