Abstract

An inhomogeneous anisotropic integral equation theory is used to predict the sixfold pattern of intensity in the structure factor for graphite intercalation compounds. The competition of length scales implied by particle size and the underlying lattice through the interplay of the liquid packing structure with the graphitic external field is shown to be responsible for the observed halo-like features in S(k). By using a density functional motivated ansatz no explicit truncation of the angular Fourier components of the density distributions was necessary.
