Patterned media is being considered as a means for achieving a storage density beyond 1Tb/in2 on hard disks by reducing cross talk and overcoming thermal stability problems. In this investigation, the flying characteristics of a femto-type slider over bit patterned media (BPM) is investigated. The discrete bits of the disk are modeled as cylindrical protrusions on the disk surface. The steady-state flying characteristics over BPM at ultra-low head disk spacing is simulated.
