Atomic structural observations on the antiphase boundaries (APBs) in the complex barium lanthanum magnesium niobate perovskite compound Ba0.7La0.3(Mg0.43Nb0.57)O 3 (BLMN), which has a 1:1 chemical ordering of B-site cations, were conducted using high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. Using APB contrast, the curved APB was determined to have a ledged structure, with a terrace that was composed of the (111) plane at an atomic level. In APBs with finite widths, microfacets on the (111) planes also were observed.
