Abstract: The Infeld function expressed in terms of the outgoing prolate spheroidal radial wave function and its derivative, and employed in the expression of the input self-admittance of prolate spheroidal antennas, has accurately been calculated by using a newly developed asymptotic expression for large degree $ n$. This asymptotic power series has been derived by using a perturbation method with a perturbation parameter $ \epsilon = 1/\left( {\lambda _{1n}} - {h^2} \right)$, where $ {\lambda _{1n}}$ is the spheroid's eigenvalue for the given parameter $ h$ of the spheroidal wave function.
