In this paper, a stochastic collocation method is considered for one-dimensional Maxwell equations with uncertainty. The random inputs of model problem comes from the dielectric constant, magnetic permeability, and the initial and boundary conditions. We first prove the regularity of the solution of one-dimensional Maxwell equations. Then the convergence of our numerical approach is verified. Further some relevant numerical examples are implemented to support the analysis.
