Developing an (Al,Ti)N x C y Interlayer to Improve the Durability of the ta-C Coating on Magnetic Recording Heads
Tribology Letters, Volume 50, Issue 2, 2013, Pages 233-243.
In this study, a new surface pre-treatment technique has been developed to improve the durability of the ultra-thin tetrahedral amorphous carbon (ta-C) coating for magnetic tape drive read/write heads. In this technique, prior to the deposition of an 8-nm ta-C overcoat, a 2-nm thin TiN interlayer was deposited on the heads surface and bom...More
