Abstract

Study of lubricant coated slider showed that low slide surface energy has significant advantages in stable slider flying and less lubricant droplet formation on the disk surface at ultra-narrow clearance. Drive level evaluation showed the lubricant pick-up induced flying height increase is as one fifth low as control slider.
