We propose force modulation atomic force microscopy (FM)-(AFM) pit recording and demonstrate the possibility of achieving ultrahigh density recording with high speed readout. A minimum pit size of around 10 nm in diameter is formed by cold plastic deformation of the polycarbonate disk surface at a force of over 40 nN. Using a prototype of the rotation type FM-AFM pit recording system, an ultrahigh recording density of 1.2 Tb/in.2 and a readout speed of 1.25 Mb/s are demonstrated in 1/2(2,7) code recording. © 1997 American Vacuum Society.
