Isotropic vs. Anisotropic

By Jaxson

  • Isotropic (adjective)

    Having properties that are identical in all directions; exhibiting isotropy

  • Isotropic (adjective)

    Having the same components in all rotated coordinate systems

  • Anisotropic (adjective)

    Having properties that differ according to the direction of measurement; exhibiting anisotropy.

    “The crystal has an anisotropic structure, as it is stronger along its length than laterally.”
