We present and analyze a hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) method for the time-harmonic Maxwell equations. The divergence-free condition is enforced on the electric field, then a Lagrange multiplier is introduced, and the problem becomes the solution of a mixed curl-curl formulation of the Maxwell’s problem. The method is shown to be an absolutely stable HDG method for the indefinite time-harmonic Maxwell equations with high wave number. By exploiting the duality argument, the dependence of convergence of the HDG method on the wave number $\kappa$, the mesh size $h$ and the polynomial order $p$ is obtained. Numerical results are given to verify the theoretical analysis.
