This paper analyzed the effect of lubricant contact on slider dynamics under the unsteady proximity condition, which is related to the intermolecular forces between the slider and disk. To investigate the slider dynamics, an experiment was conducted with a commercial drive, and the slider dynamics were analyzed during touch-down and takeoff (TO) considering the approach and withdrawal speeds of the slider. The instability of the slider dynamics increased under the rapid withdrawal condition during TO.
