Determination of the Lubricant Thickness Distribution on Magnetic Disks by Means of X-Ray Induced Volatilization and Simultaneous Photoelectron Spectroscopy
Magnetic storage disks (Fe2O3 + polymer coating) are covered with a thin layer of a fluorocarbon lubricant to maintain proper interaction between the disk and the read/write head. These lubricants are known to volatilize under bombardment with high energy particles or quanta.
