In recent years a variety of high resolution microscopic probes have become available, providing non-statistical information on many structural issues, including the c-axis structure, staging fidelity, the in-plane structure, novel surface features, intercalant island formation, domain structure and superlattice formation.1 With regard to such issues as staging fidelity, the information provided by x-ray and microscopy probes is complementary,2 whereas microscopy provides unique information about phenomena such as intercalant island morphology, the structure near surface steps and the nature of Daumas-Hérold domains. Microscopy is indeed a powerful tool for the study of charge density wave (CDW) phases in transition metal dichalcogenide systems and of phase transitions associated with such phases.3 No clear evidence for CDW phases have yet been reported for GICs.
