In this case (Fig. 5.1.3.5) is now −1 and (5.1.3.10) may be written
Now, let and be the points of the dispersion surface where the tangent is parallel to the normal to the crystal surface, and further let and be the intersections of these two tangents with and , respectively. For an incident wave of wavevector OM where M lies between I′ and I″, the normal to the crystal surface drawn from M has no real intersection with the dispersion surface and defines the total-reflection domain. The tie points and correspond to and , respectively, the extinction distance , the width of the total-reflection domain and the deviation parameter , where and are the intersections with and of the normal to the crystal surface drawn from the extremity of any incident wavevector OM.
