The number of statistically independent components in the spectroscopic image is determined using principal component analysis. In the studied measurement time interval, the spectra generally exhibit logarithmic behavior with spatially varying slope and offset, and the statistical distribution of these parameters are studied. The data illustrate the presence of mesoscopic heterogeneity in the dynamics of the relaxation behavior that can be interpreted as spatial variation in local Vogel-Fulcher temperatures.||Funding Details:||Other funder||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||AIP Publishing||Copyright (published version):||2009 American Institute of Physics||Keywords:||Spectroscopic piezoresponse force microscopy;Mesoscopic heterogeneity;Vogel–Fulcher temperatures||DOI:||10.1063/1.3242011||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
