The construction of an interaction potential for BeF2 and its mixtures with LiF on a purely first-principles basis is described. The quality of the representation of the forces on the ions obtained from ab initio electronic structure calculations by various potentials, which include many-body interaction effects to different extents, are considered. The predictions of the properties of pure BeF2 obtained in simulations with a polarizable potential are then compared with experimental values. I...Expand abstract
