In this study, we have carried out fundamental research on lubricant depletion due to laser heating in thermally assisted magnetic recording. In particular, we investigated the effects of lubricant film thickness and lubricant bonding ratio on lubricant depletion. Conventional lubricants Zdol2000 and Ztetraol2000 were used. The lubricant depletion characteristics due to laser heating were found to depend largely on the lubricant film thickness and material. That is, for films thicker than one… CONTINUE READING
