Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) is a branch of microscopy that forms images of surfaces using a physical probe that scans the specimen. An image of the surface is obtained by mechanically moving the probe in a raster scan of the specimen, line by line, and recording the probe-surface interaction as a function of position.

Nanoscale Dimensions in Hard Disk Media
27 Sep 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Demczyk
This presentation examines the relationship of longidudinal hard disk media nanostructure,lubricant distribution and surface nanoroughness to disk contact to flying time transition and lubricant thickness to data zone takeoff. Also included is a model of disk wear.
