Abstract

The lubing operation is an important step in the disk process and requires that the lubing should be complete to a constant level. This is accomplished by using the principle of OSEE (Optically Simulated Electron Emission) which has the ability to detect lube levels easily. The principle of this technique is the detection of signal attenuation when the overlayer thickness increases. The concept is readily applied to the lube operation.
