Abstract
In this proposal, Boston Applied Technologies, Incorporated (BATi) together with University of Minnesota proposes to develop a high quality epitaxially grown multiferroic thin film heterostructure through a simple wet chemical route, which has been demonstrated the capability of growing high quality multilayer films through nano-engineering and introducing proper buffer layers. The feasibility of developing of an electrically tunable RF isolator utilizing of the magnetoelectric coupling effect of the heterostructure will be evaluated.
