Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / recording head materials preparation
Japanese term or phrase: 浮上面
Some kind of surface between the head and the recording medium. The "floating gap" is the distance between the two, but is there a technical term for 浮上面 itself? Thanks.

Explanation:
I think this is referring to a gap between the head and the recording medium, and I think "clearance" is a general term for that. But what you found seems more specific to this case and I think you are right. See this one, for example:
