Novel self-assembled nanorods with a neodymium-rich core are discovered in neodymium and titanium codoped bismuth ferrite. The three-dimensional atomic structure and chemistry of these nanorods is determined using a combination of scanning transmission electron microscopy and density functional calculations. The theoretical studies show that these may function as one-dimensional semiconducting channels through the ceramic.
