This thesis presents an adaptive finite element procedure for electromagnetic scattering problems in two dimensions. The work addresses the issues of higher order basis functions and demonstrates their advantages over lower order approximations. A new a-posteriori error estimator is derived which is capable of producing bounds on non-linear outputs of the scattering problem. Subsequently, this is used to automatically adapt both the polynomial order and the mesh spacing. The effectiveness of the procedures are demonstrated through a series of examples.
