For the first time, researchers can now both explain and predict the behavior of different materials while they are being pulled apart. Some materials are ductile, meaning they will deform without losing their toughness, and others are brittle. The results explain even the unexpected and anomalous ductility of a material within a class of rare-earth-containing materials that are otherwise known to be brittle. To predict the behavior requires two maps. The first map reveals whether a system has the ability to slip in
