High resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) has been used to investigate the detailed microstructures of the antiphase boundaries (APBs) of 1:2 B-site ordered domains in fully ordered Ba(Mg1/3Ta2/3)O3 ceramic compound. The orientation relationship (102)I // (012)II, [010]I // [100]II, was found between two domains. The ledged coherent interface has formed with (101) plane as an atomic habit plane. The growth ledge which possesses the kinks on ledge structure on the riser has the height of 1.22 nm which is equivalent to three (101) planes. The coalescence of the growth ledges and the generation of these ledges at the structurally faulted region had been found experimentally. New interface model which was coherent and had a growth ledge was constructed based on the experimentally obtained diffraction pattern and HRTEM images and thereafter the lateral growth by the ledge mechanism in the coarsening of ordered phase boundaries was proposed.
