All previous thermal modeling on heat exchange between hard disk drive (HDD) head and media treated media as a heat sink with uniform ambient temperature. However in heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) system, the media temperature is no longer uniform and the temperature at the hot spot center can reach as high as 800 to 1000 K depending on recording layer's Curie temperature. In this paper, both media hot spot and the air bearing flow are included in formulating heat transfer across the head-media interface. Numerical results for a waveguide only slider and a slider with a metallic near-field transducer (NFT) are presented to illustrate the effect of HAMR media temperature.
