Abstract: When the crystals which make up silver thin films on the order of micro-meters form, the crystal lattice structure generally  forms a <111> orientation. Over time of from heat treatment, crystal reorientation can occur creating a different texture with crystals of different orientations. the texture transformation of silver films of 1200 and 1800 nanometers were observed with and without titanium bi-layers between the SiO substrate through the use of a SEM and an EBSD machine.
