A method of calculation of inhomogeneity microfield tensors in Debye plasma, using the Mayer-Mayer cluster expansion, is presented. The octupole inhomogeneity tensor of the ion microfield at a neutral emitter has been calculated for the first time. The quadrupole inhomogeneity tensor of the ion microfield at a neutral emitter has been recalculated. We have performed numerical calculations for plasma consisting of atoms, electrons and singly or doubly charged ions.
