We introduce a residual error indicator for the Nédélec finite element approximation of the eigenmodes of the Maxwell cavity problem. By using the known equivalence with a mixed problem we prove reliability and efficiency of the error indicator. Numerical results confirm the optimal behavior of an adaptive scheme based on the error indicator.
