This paper outlines some of the major features of the NCEM facility at Berkeley. Some representative areas of research are also reviewed. The uniqueness of the HVEM (1.5 MeV) and ARM (1 MeV) enables acquisition of significant new results for a wide range of materials. By providing the highest possible resolutions for characterizing materials, structurally, morphologically and chemically, continuing improvements and new material designs can be tailored to specific applications.
