CAMS is a signature facility of LLNL that uses diverse analytical techniques and state of the art instrumentation to develop and apply unique, ultra-sensitive isotope ratio measurement and ion beam analytical techniques to address a broad spectrum of scientific needs important to the Laboratory and the nation.

CAMS hosts a 10-MV FN tandem Van de Graaff accelerator, a NEC 1-MV tandem accelerator and a soon to be commissioned 250KV single stage AMS deck to perform up to 25,000 AMS measurement per year, as well as an NEC 1.7-MV tandem accelerator for ion beam analysis and microscopy. CAMS activities have broad ranging scientific impact while contributing to LLNL mission needs.
