Selective reflection of laser radiation from the interface between atomic vapor and a dielectric is studied for a wide range of vapor density. A self-consistent model is developed, some analytical results are obtained, as well as a number of curves are computed that are in good agreement with experimental spectra measured in cesium and rubidium vapor cells.
