Surface roughness Ra of glass with gold film sputtered for different sputtering times and discharge currents
Surface roughness (nm)
Sample 10 mA 20 mA 30 mA 40 mA
Glass/Au (20 s) 3.8 1.3 0.5 1.2
Glass/Au (150 s) 1.1 5.3 2.0 1.6

The surface roughness Ra of pristine glass and glass with gold film sputtered for different sputtering times (20 s, 150 s) and discharge currents (10 to 40 mA). Pristine glass has Ra= 0.34 nm. Typical error is ±10%.
