An interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin method is described with a conformal perfectly matched layer (PML) for solving the two first-order Maxwell's equations in the time domain. Both central and upwind fluxes are studied in this work. In both cases, the proposed method is explicit and conditionally stable. Additionally, a local time-stepping strategy is applied to increase efficiency and reduce the computational time. Finally, numerical examples are presented to validate the method.
