We investigate the microscopic nature of the ‘charge ordering’ modulation in mixed-valent manganites in real space using scanning transmission electron microscopy. The modulation in Bi0.5Sr0.4Ca0.1MnO3 has a uniform periodicity appearing as stripes in high-angle annular dark field images. Geometric phase analysis shows the modulation to be a displacement wave with transverse amplitude (0.008 ± 0.001)a and longitudinal amplitude (0.003 ± 0.001)a. Energy loss spectra taken across the stripes show no periodic changes and place an upper bound of ±0.04 on any valence changes of the Mn ions.
