FOX was developped by Vincent Favre-Nicolin (http://v.favrenicolin.free.fr, firstname.lastname@example.org ), in collaboration with Radovan Cerny (http://www.unige.ch/crystal/cerny/rcerny.htm) at the Laboratory of Crystallography in Geneva, Switzerland (http://www.unige.ch/crystal/lab.html), with support from the Swiss National Science Foundation (http://www.snf.ch/), project #21-53847.98.
Vincent Favre-Nicolin now has a Maître de Conférences (Associate Professor) at the [http://www.ujf-grenoble.fr Université Joseph Fourier] (Grenoble I, France), and does his research at the [http://www-drfmc.cea.fr/sp2m/ CEA/SP2M], on using anomalous diffraction for structure determination on quantum heterostructures. However, the development of Fox still goes on as a personal project.
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 ObjCryst++ homepage (http://objcryst.sf.net) for more details about the source code.
