The structure of a dilute electrolyte solution close to a surface carrying a non-homogeneous surface charge distribution is investigated by means of classical density functional theory (DFT) within the approach of fundamental measure theory (FMT). In the case of electrolyte solutions, the effects of these inhomogeneities are particularly severe due to the corresponding length scale being the Debye length, which is large compared to molecular sizes. A fully three-dimensional investigation is performed, which accounts explicitly for the sol- vent particles, and thus provides insight in effects of ion-solvent coupling. The present work introduces a powerful framework to study a broad range of possible surface charge heterogeneities even beyond the linear response regime, showing a sensitive dependence of the density profiles of the fluid components and of the electrostatic potential on the magnitude of the charge as well as on the short ranged details of the surface charge pattern.
