FEFF6 calculates wave phase shifts, effective scattering amplitudes and single and multiple scattering curved XAFS and XANES spectra, including polarization dependence, for clusters of atoms (Z < 95).
The calculation is automated and done sequentially in four steps:
For details on use of the code, examples and suggestions on calculation strategies, see sections 2, 3 and 4. For details about the algorithms used see the discussion on the appropriate module in section 2 and, for more detail, the published references in Appendix C.
FEFF is written in ANSI FORTRAN 77, with the non-standard extension of double precision complex (complex*16) variables. It requires about 3 megabytes of available memory to run. See Appendix B for complete installation instructions.

Part of the original FEFF3 code was developed in collaboration with J. Mustre de Leon and is still part of FEFF5 and FEFF6. The authors thank the users of the experimental version of this code and especially M. Newville and B. Ravel for comments and suggestions.
