Experimental evidence exists that ferroelectric crys- tals consist of many domains [1]. This was proved conclusively for $BaTiO_3$ by investigating its domain structure in detail using a polarizing microscope [2, 3]. In this letter we report the domain structure obtained by polarizing microscopy for off-valent, germanium $(Ge^4^+)$-doped single crystals of bismuth vanadate $(Bi_2VO_{5.5})$, which is a vanadium analogue of the n = 1 member of the Aurivillius family of oxides [4-6].
