Professor Yves Joly

Institut Néel, Grenoble, France

WORKSHOP: Сomputational methods for spectroscopy.


Yves Joly obtained his PhD in Physics in 1984, in the Laboratoire de Spectrométrie-Physique, Université Joseph Fourier (UJF), Grenoble, France. From 1986 to 1997 his research involved theoretical and experimental studies of nitride and carbide surfaces by means of low energy electron diffraction (LEED). Apart from that, he conducted theoretical investigation of LEED and low energy positron diffraction.

Since 1998 Professor Yves Joly has been doing research into theoretical study of X-ray absorption spectroscopies, mainly in the energy range close to the absorption edge (XANES), dichroism and resonant diffraction.He has also been engaged in the development of simulation codes, being the author of the famous FDMNES code.
