We obtain the asymptotic expansion of the Voigt functionss K(x, y) and L(x, y) for large (real) values of the variables x and y, paying particular attention to the exponentially small contributions. A Stokes phenomenon is encountered as y→+∞y→+∞ with x > 0 fixed. Numerical examples are presented to demonstrate the accuracy of these new expansions.
