FOX (Free Objects for Xtallography) is a computer program for solving crystal structures of all types of compounds using the powder data (but also the single crystal data) measured using X-ray, neutron and electron diffraction. It works in direct space using the reversed Monte Carlo algorithm of global optimization. Since its release fifteen years ago, it has developed into a powerful tool, simplifying the powder pattern analysis starting from the background determination, indexing and space group selection over the structure modelling using various pre-programmed structural fragments up to the validation of the proposed structural model.
