The ratio of two Rayleigh ratios for different angles of observation, i.e. \[z(\theta _{1},\, \theta _{2}) = \frac{R(\theta _{1})}{R(\theta _{2})}\] \[\theta _{1} < \theta _{2}\] The angles must be specified; in light scattering it is customary to let theta = 1 - theta1 and, most frequently, theta1 = 45° and theta2 = 135°.*Source: *
