In this paper, we develop a residual-based a posteriori error estimator for the time-dependent Maxwell's equations in the cold plasma. Here we consider a semi-discrete interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method for solving the governing equations. We provide both the upper bound and lower bound analysis for the error estimator. This is the first posteriori error analysis carried out for the Maxwell's equations in dispersive media.
