Strength and ductility, can be tailored by adding nanoprecipitates, represented by the blue orbs.

Scientists at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, have found a way to simultaneously increase an alloy's strength and ductility, a measure of a material's ability to stretch and be hammered thin without breaking.

"A holy grail of structural materials has long been, 'how do you simultaneously enhance strength and ductility?'" said...
