A new implementation of the perfectly matched layer (PML) absorbing boundary condition is presented. This formulation is designed such that the partial differential equations in the PML are identical to those in the regular medium for any linear electromagnetic material. This makes this method particularly simple to implement, especially in dispersive and anisotropic materials. We call this method the nearly perfectly matched layer (NPML) because it employs variable changes that are not strictly exact when the PML conductivity is spatially variant. Comparisons with the convolutional PML in a Lorentz dielectric show that the NPML is as effective an absorber as exact PML formulations.
