Description

Since its inception in 1988, the Center for Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (CAMS) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has operated as an institutional science facility, designed to apply ion-beam analytical techniques to a broad spectrum of scientific needs of importance to the LLNL, the university community, and the nation. The Center has full operational capability for high-throughput analysis of important cosmogenic and anthropogenic isotopes and uses MeV energy ion beams for materials modification and characterization/analysis applications. In addition to active internal research programs, CAMS scientists conduct a wide range of scientific research with the external community. CAMS is a globally recognized, state-of-the-art AMS facility that has had widespread scientific, technological, and analytical impact in areas including:Archaeology,Atmospheric chemistry,Bioavailability and metabolism of toxic compounds, and nutrients,Carbon-cycle dynamics,Cell biology and macromolecular turnover,Combustion mechanisms and alternative fuels,Detection of signatures of nuclear fuel reprocessing for nonproliferation purposes,Forensic dating, Medical countermeasure development, Neotectonics,Oceanic circulation,Paleoclimatology, Paleoseismology, and Quantitative metabolism.
