The importance of expanding Green's functions, particularly free-space Green's functions in terms of orthogonal wave functions is practically self-evident when frequency domain scattering problems are of interest. With the relatively recent and widespread interest in time-domain scattering problems, similar expansions of Green's functions are expected to be useful in the time-domain. In this paper, an expression, expanded in terms of orthogonal spherical vector wave functions, for the time-domain free-space dyadic Green's function is presented and scattering by a perfectly conducting sphere is studied as an application to check numerically the validity and to demonstrate the utility of this expression.
