Machine learning has gained an enormous interest in the past decade to boost data evaluation in many fields of applied physics. For example, feature recognition in high dimensional datasets in scanning probe microscopy (SPM) can be improved and hidden effects resolved. However, the physical relevance of resolved features is normally still determined by humans.
In this work, we investigate if the regularization of a deep learning (DL) neuronal network, composed of long-short term memory and temporal convolutional network based layers inside an autoencoder architecture, can be utilized to characterize physical significance. We do this on a conductive atomic force microscopy dataset, collected on ferroelectric GaV4S8, as the general properties have already been identified and there are emergent traits at the domain walls. The resolved features from the DL approach are compared to those derived from classical clustering algorithms and classically resolved local material properties. This set up is the first steps to automatic evaluation of physically significant properties in GaV4S8, and is expected to be applicable to other ferroelectric systems.
