    An isotropic radiator is a transducer that produces useful electromagnetic field output in all directions with equal intensity, and at 100% efficiency. In wireless applications the isotropic radiator is theoretical, although the dipole antenna roughly approximates it. It is used as a standard reference source against which the performance of other antennas is measured.
