Non-symmetric variations in photographic slides of polarized laser light scattering experimental results are difficult to see. This paper explains a process developed for measuring the light density at points throughout the slide area using a transmission densitometer, so an accurate description of the laser light scattering may be obtained. A slide was tested using the described process and the results are presented. The results turned out well, but there were some errors introduced by the instability of the densitometer and by human error in reading the chart recorder output.
