A parametric study of head-disk interface instability due to intermolecular forces


This paper presents a nonlinear dynamic analysis of the head-disk interface by including intermolecular adhesion forces for sub-5-nm flying air-bearing sliders. Experimental evidence shows that one of the major roadblocks in achieving ultralow flying heights is the stability of the head-disk interface. It is found that the inclusion of intermolecular forces… (More)
