From its inception in 1929, CAMECA
has been renowned for its precision mechanics, optics and electronics. CAMECA
started in France as a manufacturer of movie theater projectors, and soon the
products evolved into scientific instrumentation. 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 3D
Atom Probe. CAMECA
has evolved from a manufacturer of scientific instrumentation for the international
research community to a provider of in-fab
and near-fab metrology solutions for the semiconductor manufacturing industry.
Today, CAMECA employs over 300 employees around the world, with locations in
the USA, Germany, Japan, Korea, China, and Taiwan, 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
