X-ray-reflectivity measurements have been carried out on silver films which were vapor deposited onto silicon substrates, to investigate the thickness evolution of the film’s surface roughness. The growth exponent was found to be β=0.26±0.05, and the roughness exponenet was found to be H=0.70±0.10.
