2. Biology not having predetermined axes

isotropic

[¦ī·sə¦trä·pik]
(biology)
Having a tendency for equal growth in all directions.
(cell and molecular biology)
An ovum lacking any predetermined axis.
(physics)
Having identical properties in all directions.

isotropic

Said of a building material that has the same physical properties in all directions.

isotropic

The properties of a material that are the same in all directions. For example, an isotropic antenna radiates the same power in all directions. In practice, antennas cannot be 100% isotropic. However, a perfect isotropic antenna, called an "isotropic radiator," can be calculated, and it is used as a basis for measuring the signal strength of real antennas. Contrast with anisotropic. See dBi.

In addition, the in situ formation of coupling agent serves to isotropically distribute the titanium-oxo-clusters in a way that is not possible for nanosized particulate Ti[O.
SAXS patterns along MD gave a much less intense diffraction ring, typical of melt-crystallized isotropic polymers, indicating a small number of isotropically distributed lamellae.
The simultaneity is ascertained by the fact that the value of time in question corresponds to a definite position of the advancing spherical gravitational disturbance which is propagated radially and isotropically according to the very definition of the S[THETA](4)-invariant metric.
Specifically, in a strained melt, isotropically grown spherulites are replaced by row nuclei growing into densely packed or irregularly spaced lamellae (shish kebab structures), resulting in highly anisotropic structures.
