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 (Bi<sub>0.85</sub>Nd<sub>0.15</sub>)(Fe<sub>0.9</sub>Ti<sub>0.1</sub>)O<sub>3</sub> (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.<p></p>
