Examples of total internal reflection manifestation have been considered on the basis of a solution to boundary problems of crystal optics using the Berreman matrix method and applying the Mathematica-5 system. It is shown how optical activity manifests itself in the total internal reflection and how this effect can be used to monitor the quality and homogeneity of film coatings.
