A modified coarse-grained, bead-spring model for lubricant transfer from a bit patterned media (BPM) disk to a slider is developed using molecular dynamics (MD). The lubricant transfer at slider/BPM disk interface is compared with that at slider/conventional disk interface. In addition, the effect of lubricant thickness and slider flying height is investigated.
