Is The FDTD solver an implicit or explicit time stepping scheme?

I think it is an implicit method but you may refer to Wikipedia to find an exact answer.

What FDTD does is it calculates the new magnetic field from old mag. and electric fields and then a new electric field from the old mag. and elec. fields over time.
Thereby moving forward time-step after time-step.
