High resolution scanning transmission electron microscope (HRSTEM) imaging and electron energy loss spectroscopy spectrum imaging (EELS SI) methods have been successfully applied to the analysis of (Bi0.85Nd0.15)(Fe0.9Ti0.1)O3 (BNFT) ceramics. The atomic scale structural and chemistry of defects in these ceramics have been determined, leading to the discovery of a new class of Nd-rich nanoprecipitates in these ceramics.
