November 24, 2010

MIGDAL HAEMEK, Israel, November 24, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Camtek
Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: CAMT), announced that SELA – Semiconductor Engineering
Laboratories Ltd. (“SELA”), whose share capital was fully acquired by Camtek
in November 2009, was chosen as one of the top 10 nanotechnology companies in
Israel by the NanoIsrael 2010 Committee.

SELA is engaged in the development, manufacturing and marketing of
automated SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) and TEM (Transmission Electron
Microscope) sample preparation equipment, primarily for the semiconductor
industry.

SELA’s Xact system is the first TEM/STEM sample preparation system using
Adaptive Ion Milling (AIM) technology. The AIM technology brings numerous
advantages to traditional FIB (Focused Ion Beam) technology by reducing the
sample thickness to below 20nm over a large area with high precision and
throughput, as well as superior image quality. SELA has the ability to enable
material analysis on the atomic scale and image structures and material
interfaces in a controlled and unique manner otherwise unattainable.

Roy Porat, Camtek’s Chief Executive Officer, commented: “The recognition
of Sela as a leading participant in the nano-material and nanotechnology
market is due to Sela’s technological leadership in this space. We are proud
of our newly acquired company. This recognition of Sela together with its
proven commercial viability is an additional vindication of our acquisition.”
