WHAT DOES ANISOTROPIC MEAN IN ENGLISH?

anisotropic

Anisotropy

Anisotropy /ˌænaɪˈsɒtrəpi/ is the property of being directionally dependent, as opposed to isotropy, which implies identical properties in all directions. It can be defined as a difference, when measured along different axes, in a material's physical or mechanical properties An example of anisotropy is the light coming through a polarizer. Another is wood, which is easier to split along its grain than against it.

Definition of anisotropic in the English dictionary

The definition of anisotropic in the dictionary is not isotropic; having different physical properties in different directions. Other definition of anisotropic is responding unequally to an external stimulus in different parts of the plant.
