Internal reflection spectroscopy is discussed for a nonuniform distribution of an absorbing species. Although some distributions cannot experimentally be distinguished from others, if one assumes a distribution, information about depth and concentration can be obtained by making measurements at several angles of incidence. A practical method is proposed and demonstrated for obtaining thickness and concentration for an assumed step profile.
