Refraction of light using various shaped optical mediums

Total Internal Reflection (TIR) using a semi-circular perspex

For Total Internal Reflection (TIR) to occur:
1) angle of incidence i is greater than the critical angle c
2) the light is travelling from a denser medium towards a less dense medium
