Ferroelectrics with a spatial variation in the polarization exhibit behavior and proper-
ties that are not routinely observed from homogenous bulk or thin film ferroelectrics.
A systematic spatial variation in the polarization in a ferroelectric material can be
achieved by variations in the composition of the material, impressing temperature
