Both the statistical principal component and correlation function analysis and the stretched exponent fits of relaxation curves illustrate the presence of mesoscopic "fast"and "slow" 100-200 nm regions. The spatial distribution of activation energies is reconstructed using a neural-network-based inversion of the relaxation data. The results directly prove the presence of mesoscopic heterogeneities associated with static and dynamic components of the order parameter on the surfaces of ferroelectric relaxors in the ergodic phase.||Funding Details:||Other funder||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||American Physical Society||Copyright (published version):||2010 The American Physical Society||Keywords:||Polarization relaxation kinetics;Piezoresponse force microscopy;Static heterogeneity;Dynamic heterogeneity;PMN-10PT||DOI:||10.1103/PhysRevB.81.064107||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
