  • Patent number: 9691416
    Abstract: A magnetic write head having a heat sink structure located adjacent to a trailing magnetic shield. The heat sink structure prevents heat generated by the magnetic oscillator current from causing damage to and reducing reliability of the magnetic write head. The trailing magnetic shield is substantially aligned with the magnetic oscillator, allowing the heat sink structure to wrap around the sides and back of the trailing magnetic shield and to provide good heat conduction away from the write pole, magnetic oscillator and trailing magnetic shield. The heat sink structure can be constructed of a material such as Ru, TiN, Cu, Au, Ag and AlN, and is preferably constructed of Au, which has excellent thermal properties.

  • Patent number: 8964324
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to clearance control between a magnetic head and a recording medium in a magnetic disk device. A magnetic head comprises an embedded contact sensor, a thermal flying height control element, and a hard disk drive controller. The hard disk drive controller is adapted to control a detection current of the embedded contact sensor and a power applied to the thermal flying height control. The detection current supplied to the embedded contact sensor is optimized so that a change in resistance of the embedded contact sensor is less sensitive relative to the power applied to the thermal flying height control. The resistance of the embedded contact sensor remains unchanged when the power applied to the thermal flying height control is changed to adjust for changes in the clearance. Thus, clearance changes can be detected by monitoring changes in the resistance of the embedded contact sensor.

  • Publication number: 20130279045
    Abstract: A head for magnetic thermally assisted magnetic data recording, having a read element, a write element a heater element for controlling thermal protrusion of the read and write elements and a thermal sensor for detecting contact a portion of the head with a magnetic media. The thermal contact sensor is arranged so that the thermal conduction between the thermal contact sensor and the read element is substantially equal to the thermal conductivity between the thermal contact sensor and the write element. In this way the accuracy of the detection of thermal contact is maintained whether the read element makes contact with the disk or the write element makes contact with disk.
