We present a one-step algorithm to solve the time-dependent Maxwell equations for systems with spatially varying permittivity and permeability. We compare the results of this algorithm with those obtained from unconditionally stable algorithms and demonstrate that for a range of applications the one-step algorithm may be orders of magnitude more efficient than multiple time-step, finite- difference time-domain algorithms. We discuss both the virtues and limitations of this one-step approach.
