The local structures around Nb and Pb in the relaxor ferroelectric Pb(Mg$$_{1/3}$$Nb$$_{2/3}$$)O$$_3$$ were investigated by X-ray fluorescence holography. The Pb atomic images around Nb showed a rhombohedral distortion of the crystal unit cells. The Pb-Pb correlated images showed a local structure of body-center-like $$2a_0times 2a_0 times 2a_0$$ superlattice, proving a rigid three-dimensional network structural model combining the two kinds of rhombohedrons. This superstructure and the fluctuating Pb and Nb atoms play an important role in the relaxor behavior of this material.
