Mechanical properties of thin carbon overcoats

Abstract:

Components used in magnetic storage systems (hard discs, tape heads and drums) are often very small and lightweight, and operate under very low loads (of the order of a few microgrames to a few milligrams). As a result, friction and wear processes occur on a nanometre scale and conventional tribological test methods and assessment tools are usually not appropriate. Furthermore, the assessment of the mechanical properties of the coatings or surface treatments used to protect these components f...
