Sorry, no etymologies found.
However, currently available resistor solutions for biasing LED current have significant disadvantages such as inhomogeneous light output and reduced lifetime of LEDs.
Hence, although the distribution of galaxies might look homogeneous on the length-scales hitherto observed, it may be that the universe is inhomogeneous on longer length-scales.
In addition, the terrain around Tromsø is inhomogeneous, consisting of open fjords surrounded by high mountains.
Results from a three-dimensional radiative transfer model  suggest that the inhomogeneous surface albedo reduces the effective albedo to only 0.55 to 0.60.
Case study on the influence of inhomogeneous surface albedo on UV irradiance.
This might suggest more local inhomogeneous distribution of matter than thought.
Within a few hundred million years after the end of radiation dominate period or the last ionization scatterin sphere the CMB large scale structures emerged Inflationary cosmology removed most inhomogeneous distributions of matter, and flattened out perturbations on homomgeneity grew into large structures such as these galaxies.
The universe around 500my after the big bang has anisotropic and inhomogeneous distributions which are amplified due to some Virial process where accumulated matter has a kinetic energy equal to half the potential and due to “friction.”
These small inhomogeneous pertrubations survive to the end ot the radiation dominated period.
