This paper presents a newly developed high-order discontinuous Galerkin time-domain (DGTD) method for solving Maxwell's equations in linear dispersive media with UPML boundary treatment. A unified formulation is derived for linear dispersive media of Debye type and the artificial material in the UPML regions with the help of auxiliary differential equations. The DGTD employs finite-element-type meshes, and uses piecewise high-order polynomials for spatial discretization and Runge-Kutta method for time integrations. Arbitrary high-order accuracy can be obtained for scattering of various objects in dispersive media. After validating the numerical convergence of the DGTD method together with the second-order Yee's scheme, we apply this new method to the ground-penetrating radar for the detection of buried objects in a lossy half space.
