Various techniques for the measurement of air-bearing separation are described. Examples are given in the specific area of self-acting air-bearing sliders on rotating disks. The techniques can be categorized as capacitive, inductive and optical. The optical technique lacks frequency response but can provide an accurate and convenient way of calibration for the typically nonlinear but versatile capacitive and inductive gap sensors.
