The use of ceramic materials is often restricted by a transition from ductile behavior to brittle fracture with decreasing temperature. For example, strontium titanate ( SrTiO3) is known to be extremely fragile and brittle below 1300 K. It is therefore surprising to find that SrTiO3 single crystals can be deformed in compression below 1050 K again. Extensive plastic deformation up to 7% strain at low yield stresses of the order of only 120 MPa is possible at room temperature. Low temperature plasticity is carried by the same   dislocations as the high temperature deformation along the  axis. From this we conclude that these dislocations must exist in two different core configurations.
