abstract

The contact potential across the head-disk interface is investigated. AC voltage was applied to the disk surface using a mercury connector located at the top of the spindle, keeping the recording head grounded. The acoustic emission (AE) and touchdown sensor (TDS) amplitude was measured as a function of the DC offset voltage to determine the contact potential across the head-disk interface at which the AE and TDS signals, respectively, becomes a minimum. The contact potential across the head-disk interface is studied as a function of temperature, relative humidity, and wear of the head-disk interface.
