An important advance in the use of the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method has been the introduction of the perfectly matched layer (PML) to act as the absorbing boundary condition. The initial implementation required the E and H fields to be split. Recent advances have suggested a new unsplit step PML. This paper describes an FDTD implementation of this new unsplit PML in three dimensions, but implements them in the D and H fields. This has the advantage of isolating the PML from the rest of the FDTD computation, but, unlike the split step formulation, requires almost no additional computational resources
