Using a total of 1052 Bragg reflections of silicon, an X-ray investigation has been carried out to deduce the anharmonic thermal parameter beta, apart from the estimation of the harmonic contribution of the thermal vibration at room temperature. Reflections of type h + k + l = 4n, and 4n +/- 1 were used to estimate these parameters using MoKalpha radiation and a Nonius CAD-4 X-ray diffractometer. We obtain B(Si) = 0.451 (0.008) angstrom2 and beta(Si) = 0.279(2.630) eV angstrom-3 with R = 3.12%. The present B and beta values are in very good agreement with the earlier studies.
