 Thermally processable imaging element comprising an overcoat layer - Patent 4942115
Overcoat layers have been useful on the thermally processable imaging elements to prevent undesired marking of the element during processing and hinder or prevent release of volatile components from the element at processing temperatures.
It has been desirable to increase the degree of adhesion of such an overcoat to a imaging layer, particularly an imaging layer that is hydrophobic, to reduce the tendency or prevent the overcoat layer from being removed or being distorted during thermal processing.
Overcoat is easily stripped off the structure A, but not from structure B, even when the overcoat is heavily scored prior to the tape test.

Disclosure of the Invention An object of the present invention is a magnetic recording medium comprising a thin protective overcoat capable of preventing corrosion of the underlying magnetic layer, migration of ions for underlying layers, exhibiting a suitable surface polarity for lubricant bonding and a suitable conductivity.
In accordance with an embodiment of the present invention, a composite protective overcoat is employed comprising a layer of hydrogenated carbon and a layer of amorphous carbon nitride or graphitic carbon formed on the layer of hydrogenated carbon.
The overall thickness of the resulting composite protective overcoat is minimized while optimizing the degree of bonding of an applied lubricant, preventing corrosion of the underlying magnetic layer, and preventing migration of ions from underlying layers.

 United States Patent: 6,432,753
The metallic overcoat most preferably comprises a layer of electrolytically deposited copper approximately 15.mu.m thick that is patterned to provide for electrically independent regions; but an unbroken area of the metallic overcoat is left over any sensitive analog circuitry, such as a bandgap reference circuit.
In one aspect of the invention, a band gap reference circuit is fabricated using a thick metallic overcoat such as a simple copper overcoat as a stress-relief layer to minimize package-shift effects.
From the planarized to the metallic overcoat dies, the mean improved by 37% and the standard deviation improved by 36% while improving 47% and 48% respectively, relative to non-planarized dies.
