Using the CSS tester to measure the stiction for textured sliders.
Advisor: Prof. Frank Talke
My research is focussed on the following topics:
- Surface characterization of textured sliders
- Using the AFM to measure the roughness of the textured sliders.
- Using the CSS tester to measure the stiction for textured sliders.
- Checking the applicability of Laser Texturing, to texture the sliders.
- Mobility study for X1P lubricant using the SRA.
- Use of the Nanoindenter as a wear tester.
