Multiferroic is one of the potential multifunctional materials for applications in novel based devices including magnetoelectric memory, spintronic and sensor. Efforts to develop more efficient multiferroic materials provide new opportunities and challenges in this field. Existing multiferroic materials were modified to enhance their existing properties. One of the known multiferroic materials is BiFeO3 which has a great potential to exhibit excellent multiferroic properties at room temperature. In this work, the investigation focuses on the variety functional and physical properties of strainfree and strained perovskite-type multiferroic materials. The abinitio calculations based on Density Functional Theory plus onsite Coulomb repulsion U method (LDA+U and GGA-PBEsol+U) as implemented in plane-wave pseudopotential CASTEP code were employed. The structural, lower energy symmetry, electronic, optical and elastic properties of strain-free BiFeO3 were preliminary determined. It has been shown that the application of self-interaction corrected LDA+U and GGA-PBEsol+U functionals improve the accuracy of calculated properties. The results of structural, electronic, elastic and optical properties of BiFeO3, calculated using LDA+U and GGA-PBEsol+U are in good agreement with other available calculations and experimental data. The lower energy symmetry of strained BiFeO3 was then studied via ab-initio calculation…
