We report on the dispersion of surface waves in a bounded gyrotropic medium. Numerical results are obtained for quartz and sodium chlorate. An attenuated-total-reflection (ATR) experiment for surface waves is formulated for a vacuum-medium interface. We also compute the ATR spectra for quartz and sodium chlorate.
