The major goal of this project is to identify specific classes of fluoride based heterostructure interfaces with most promising magnetoelectronic multiferroic properties. Our approach involves iterative computational and experimental efforts. Such procedure will not only allow us to understand the fundamental mechanisms responsible for the interface properties, but will also eliminate some of the empirical aspects that would be present in a purely experimental materials search project thus significantly improve the chance of success.
