The relaxation of the long-range strain field near grain boundaries by the formation of structural dislocations has been extensively studied in metals.1 The structure of the grain boundary dislocation arrays has been shown to be determined by the misfit geometry as well as the interfacal energy of the grain boundary. Very little data, however, are available for the grain boundary structures in ionic crystals, in which the interatomic interaction is different from that in metals.
