We dipped two roughened glass plates with a changeable average separation of some µm into a liquid reservoir and recorded the fronts. The mean height of the fronts was found to be ∝ √t. For the smallest separation the boundary line became very rough and the formation of overhangs and bubbles was observed. We determined the roughness exponent χ from the height differences of the spatial correlation function. At small length scales we found χ ≈ 0.8, above a crossover-length there is χ ≈ 0.6, as predicted by the Kardar Parisi Zhang equation. The value of the crossover length matches the value predicted by the phase field model [M. Dubé et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 83, 1628 (1999)]. An alternative explanation therefore is given by another non-local model [V. Ganesan and H. Brenner, Phys. Rev. Lett. 81, 578 (1998)]. Finally our results may explain the broadly scattered values aquired by previous experiments conducted with Hele-Shaw cells which yielded much bigger χ than predicted by local theories.
