Layered bismuth oxides of the general formula $(Bi_2O_2)^{2+}$ $(A_{n-1}B_nO_{3n+1})^{2-}$ where A = Bi or Ba, B = Ti, Fe, W and n = number of perovskite layers have been investigated by high resolution electron microscopy. Lattice images obtained for n = 1 to 6 members show stacking of (n-1) perovskite layers sandwiched between dark bands due to the $(Bi_2O_2)^{2+}$ layers. It was possible to resolve the perovskite layer structures in some of the oxides. A highly ordered structure was observed upto the n = 3 member, whereas higher members show superstructures, dislocations and stacking faults arising from the side-stepping of $(Bi_2O_2)^{2+}$ layers as well as ferroelectric domain walls.
