Peiponen et al. [ Opt. Lett. 35, 4108 (2010)] have expressed concern that a theoretical model we proposed in Calhoun et al. [ Opt. Lett. 35, 1224 (2010)] for total internal reflection from a turbid medium may be inconsistent with the experimental data, in the sense that the model fails to take into account unexplained oscillations in our data. We show that their concern arises from misinterpretation of our data and theory, and is, therefore, unfounded. Note: Optics Letters apologizes to the authors for the delay in the publication of this Reply.
