Anisotropy

#) Anisotropy: Anisotropy is 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 (absorbance, refractive index, conductivity, tensile strength, etc.)

>>// 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.
