Bibliography & Citing Fox#


FOX was developed by Vincent Favre-Nicolin, in collaboration with Radovan Cerny at the Laboratory of Crystallography of the University of Geneva, Switzerland, with support from the Swiss National Science Foundation (project #21-53847.98, 2000-2001).

Vincent Favre-Nicolin continued the project (but not as a main research project) while working at ESRF (2001-2002), at the Université Grenoble Alpes (2002-).

Note: This is a free, open-source project. If there is something that you would like to see in it, you can contribute to it by submitting bugs, new code, help improving the documentation. See the github project page <> for more details about the source code.
