The mechanical properties of pure carbon (C) and carbon-nitrogen (C:N) coatings on thin film head sliders were investigated by continuous drag testing (CDT) and nano-indentation. Comparisons were made in terms of wear protection, elastic modulus and hardness of these two types of carbon films. The C and C:N thin films with various thickness were deposited on thin film head sliders using a facing target sputtering (FTS) system. After 23,000 revolutions of CDT tests, all the testing head sliders… CONTINUE READING
