In this paper, we give the state of the art for the so called "mixed spectral elements" for Maxwell's equations. Several families of elements, such as edge elements and discontinuous Galerkin methods (DGM) are presented and discussed. In particular, we show the need of introducing some numerical dissipation terms to avoid spurious modes in these methods. Such terms are classical for DGM but their use for edge element methods is a novel approach described in this paper. Finally, numerical experiments show the fast and low-cost character of these elements.
