The spreading properties of PEPE films, with and without reactive end groups (Fomblin-Zdol and Z), on various nitrogenated and hydrogenated carbon surfaces were examined for application to high-performance disk drives. To understand the spreading profiles observed from micro-ellipsometry measurements for these systems, a Monte Carlo (MC) simulation was performed. It was found that an extra ingredient was required to explain the spreading behavior of Zdol. Two novel modifications were thus established to overcome this limitation.
