When a white X-ray beam impinges on a flat surface under grazing incidence conditions, X-rays at certain energies travel along the material surface. These X-rays are called `surface traveling X-rays' in this paper. We observed the surface traveling X-rays from n-C33H68/Si, and found two types of peaks through the n-C33H68 layer. The energies of these peaks can be calculated from the structure of the sample. Here, the density and thickness of n-C33H68 film were determined by fitting the calculated energies to the experimental ones.
