Center for Advanced Microstructures and Devices

CAMD is a synchrotron radiation research center at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. The mission of CAMD is to provide infrastructure for research and education in synchrotron-based science and technology. The facility was built with a $25-million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy and is currently operating with an annual state-provided budget of $4 million. The heart of the facility is a 1.5 GeV electron storage ring that was built exclusively to provide synchrotron radiation. Research in basic sciences and microfabrication is conducted by scientist and engineers from Louisiana universities, along with distinguished scientists from national and international institutions.
