Abstract

A novel contact recording slider design for HDD, which continuously contacts a disk surface was investigated. The design of the slider which has a wide air bearing surface in the front and a contact portion in the rear, enables precise division of suspension load between hydrodynamic force and contact force under certain tolerances. Therefore stable contact between the slider and the disk is accomplished with small contact force, and wear of the slider can be minimized. Experiments show the small spacing deviation at the contact portion (<5nm) with small contact force (<0.2mN).
