Aerators should be regularly kept cleaned or replaced. The mesh in the aerator can collect lead debris, and then leach this toxic metal into the water passing through it. Aerators cap the ends of most drinking-water faucets. In some cases, they’re used to conserve water by reducing a faucet’s maximum flow rate; in others their primary function is to concentrate the flow of water so that it delivers more pressure and cleaning power. But these little metal cages also collect debris. Including lead. And unless you’re regularly cleaning out those aerators, you might be developing a toxic mini gravel field through which your drinking water must pass before reaching your glass or coffee pot. Indeed, one lead poisoning case in North Carolina involved a child (see link below): www.dcwater.com/waterquality/faqs.cfm

An area of Pt thin film deposited on the surface of a polished fine grained sample. Subjected to tensile mechanical stress, substrate and thin film show a different plastic behavior. Mixed together and material information was obtained by the use of the solid state below the lens detector in addition to beam deceleration.

Cross-transverse view of a cigarette filter, showing cellulose acetate fibers. Ingestion or inhalation of fragments of cigarette filter fibers is a health problem for almost all smokers, but also contributes to the formation of lung cancer. Smoking is a trap. Quit now!

ZnO has large exciton binding energy of about 60 meV so they can be used as transparent electrodes in displays and metal oxide semiconductor in optoelectronic devices. ZnO also is an attractive piezoelectric materials mainly used in surface accuostic waves components and piezoelectric devices.
