AMETEK Materials Analysis Division
Path: Home>Company>About us

From its inception in 1929, CAMECA has been renowned for its precision mechanics, optics and electronics. The company started in France as a manufacturer of movie theater projectors, before rapidly evolving into a provider of scientific instrumentation for the international research community and in-fab / near-fab metrology solutions for the semiconductor manufacturing industry.

Since pioneering Electron Probe MicroAnalysis (EPMA) in the 1950's and Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) in the 1960's, CAMECA has remained the undisputed world leader in these techniques while achieving numerous breakthrough innovations in complementary techniques such as Low energy Electron induced X-ray Emission Spectrometry (LEXES), and Atom Probe Tomography (APT). In 2016, NU Instruments was integrated into CAMECA, broadening our product offering and technical capabilities in isotopic and elemental mass spectrometry through innovative Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS), Glow Discharge Mass Spectrometry (GD-MS)  and Thermal Ionisation Mass Spectrometry (TIMS) product lines.

Today, CAMECA employs over 300 employees around the world, with locations in Brazil, China, Germany, India, Japan, Korea, Russia, Taiwan, UK and USA and a wide network of agents, ensuring the best level of support to all users. Our mission is to focus on instrumental development to offer our customers the highest analytical performance in their specialized characterization fields.

Operating under ISO 9001 certification, CAMECA controls not only the technology, but all aspects in the designing, manufacturing, installing and servicing of its products.  Located at our headquarters near Paris, France, as well as at our Atom Probe Technology Center in Madison, Wisconsin, USA, and in Wrexham, UK for the ICP-MS, GD-MD and TIMS product lines, our plants are state of the art facilities, using the best practices for clean room production, computer networking, electron and ion optics simulation and advanced CAD.

CAMECA is a business unit of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global provider of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices, as part of the AMETEK Materials Analysis Division.
