Through analysis of low-field AC susceptibility data in relaxor ferroelectric and magnetic spin glass solids, the key parameters of activation energy, EA, and freezing temperature, Tf, were extracted from the Vögel-Fulcher dependence of the maxima. At higher temperatures the deviation temperature, TD, was obtained from departure of the high temperature Curie-Weiss behavior. Collectively, these parameters were found to scale across different compounds and solid solutions for both the magnetic spin glasses and relaxor ferroelectrics.
