FDTD method opened a fertile research area on the numerical analysis of electromagnetic phenomena under a wide range of media and propagation conditions, providing an extensive analysis of electromagnetic behaviour like propagation, reflection, refraction, and multitrajectory phenomena. In this paper, we present an optimised FDTD-CPML algorithm, focused in saving memory while increasing the performance of the algorithm. We particularly implement FDTD-CPML method at high frequency bands, used in

We show an analysis of the performance of the algorithm in single and double precision, as well as a stability of the algorithm analysis, from where we conclude that the implemented CPML ABC constitutes a robust choice in terms of precision and accuracy for the high frequencies herein considered. It is important to recall that the CPML ABC parameters provided in this paper are fixed for the tested range of frequencies, that is, from MHz to THz.
