Transmission electron microscopy study of Pb(Zr0.90Ti0.10)O3ceramics was performed. Two types of domain patterns were found: the 109° domain with the F spots observed in neighboring domains and the 71° domain with the F spots observed in one domain and having disappeared in the neighboring one. Computer simulations showed that the F spots are forbidden at h=k positions so that they do not appear in the electron diffraction pattern if viewed along the [1̄10] direction.
