Abstract: The problem of the propagation of electromagnetic waves by a magnetic line dipole source located at the corner of a right angled wedge is considered. It is assumed that an impedance or mixed boundary condition is prescribed on one of the wedge surfaces and that a homogeneous boundary condition is prescribed on the other. The impedance boundary condition is such that surface waves are generated. The amplitude of the surface wave generated is determined. A comparison is made between the magnitude of the surface wave for this problem and that of a magnetic-line dipole source located at the corner of a right angled wedge with the same impedance boundary condition prescribed on both* surfaces. The far field amplitude of the radiated electromagnetic field is also given as an elementary function of the angle of observation.
