Scattering from a honeycomb lattice (a) primitive vector ~ a 1 = √ 3 b ˆ x , ~ a 2 = √ 3 2 b ˆ x + 3 2 b ˆ y ; (b) reciprocal lattice vectors ~ b 1 = 4 π 3 b ( √ 3 2 ˆ x 1 2 ˆ y ), ~ b 1 = 4 π 3 b ˆ y ; (c) draw the reciprocal lattice, and please label those points with different distances w.r.t some reference point. Up to the 4th smallest reciprocal lattice vector, the 4 length are d, √ 3 d, 2 d, √ 7 d , where d = 4 π 3 b ; (d) use geometrical structure factor: choose basis for this lattice ~ d 1 = and ~ d 2 = √ 3 2 b ˆ x + 1 2 b ˆ y , then the geometrical structure factor S ~ K = e i ~ K · ~ d 1 + e i ~ K · ~ d 2 where ~ K = n 1 ~ b 1 + n 2 ~ b 2 = 4 π 3 b ( √ 3 2 n 1 ˆ x + ( n 2 1 2 n 1 )ˆ y ) thus S ~ K = 1 + e i · 2 3 ( n 1 + n 2 ) π and  S ~ K  2 = 4 , ( n 1 + n 2 ) mod 3 = 0; 1 , ( n 1 + n 2 ) mod 3 = 1 , 2 the intensities of diffracted waves is proportional to  S ~ K  2 , and from c) (express those points in c) in the form of ~ K = n 1 ~ b 1 + n 2 ~ b 2 )you can find that the points that have 2nd smallest reciprocal...
