This project aims at strengthening the collaboration between the partner groups on the study of multiferroic materials, their surfaces and nanostructures.The combination of complementary theoretical and experimental methods envisages a consistent understanding of the cross relation between local electron density and locally probed hyperfine and electronic properties. The use of ab-initio methods allows toseparate theanalysis of various parameters that can influence the properties of materials (strain,impurities, heteroepitaxy). The local hyperfine properties studies, whose experimental part is currently performed at ISOLDE-CERN using radioactive ions withinternational collaborations, allows the study at the nanoscale level, probing the role of atomic scale structure. Young researchers, within Ph.D. and post-doctoral projects, will greatly benefit from this project, by the added value of training and personal interaction in both institutions.
