The quai Ernest-Ansermet runs parallel to the Arve river. No. 24 is a building marked Ecole de Physique close to the television studio tower. Enter the building by the main entrance on the quai Ernest-Ansermet and once inside walk down the stairs to the left of the reception desk. Once downstairs follow the long corridor to the right and the office is on the left-hand side. To help you along you may consult a map of Geneva.
Theory and practise of diffraction methods (crystal structure determination from single crystals and powders, lattice defects, texture) :Structures from powders . In collaboration with V. Favre-Nicolin we have developped the program Fox,Decomposition of overlapping reflections in a powder diffraction pattern with the help of preferred orientation (texture).
