This research investigates to analyze the effect of laser of thermally assisted magnetic recording system on diamond like carbon (DLC) layer of slider. We investigated a damaged DLC layer of slider with laser spot-induced damage and analyze the effect of the damaged DLC layer in slider dynamics. The damaged DLC layer resulted in change of flying height and air bearing stiffness pressure.
