Recent recording areal density and integrated drive performance demonstrations using Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR) suggest that it is a viable technology to succeed conventional magnetic recording. However challenges still remain for the near field transducer, in particular reliability and sufficient thermal confinement. We explore a new NFT design, Near field Transducer Gap (NTG), which offers the potential to mitigate some of the issues in track confinement and thermal profile compared to earlier published studies [4]. The design offers efficiency improvements, and the potential to reduce unwanted background light and heating that can lead to erasure in the writing track, and neighbors. © 2014 SPIE.
