An exact expression of the outgoing boundary intensities in the case of a gray nonscattering semitransparent medium (STM) confined in a plane parallel slab with a refractive index linearly depending on the position is proposed. It is shown that directly using the diffuse reflection law gives in a much easier way exactly the same result as the one obtained with the pseudosource method.
