This patent discusses a small particle diagnostic apparatus employing illumination by coherent light of high polarization ratio, polarized separation of the reflected particle scatter optical signals and the ability to consider particles in plural locations of a diagnostic aperture aided by use of a vidicon or other position-sensitive transducer device and an optional image intensifier device. Digital storage and analysis of the particle scatter data and computer control of the optical and analysis sequences are contemplated.
