Electromagnetic fields excited by a line source in the presence of an infinite dielectric wedge with refractive index N are determined by application of the Kontorovich–Lebedev transform. Singular integral equations for spectral functions are solved by perturbation procedure, and the solution is obtained in the form of a Neumann series in powers of $1-N^{-2}$. The devised numerical scheme permits evaluation of the higher-order terms and, thus, extends the perturbation solution to values of N not necessarily close to unity. Asymptotic approximations for the near and far fields inside and outside the dielectric wedge are derived. The combination of the Neumann-type expansion of the transform functions with the representation of the field as a Bessel function series extends solutions derived with the Kontorovich–Lebedev method to the case of real-valued wavenumbers and arbitrarily positioned source and observer. Numerical results showing the influence of wedges with various values of dielectric and magnetic constants on the directivity of a line source are presented and verified through finite-difference frequency-domain simulations.
