With the temperature power spectrum of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) at least four orders of magnitude larger than the B-mode polarization power spectrum, any instrumental imperfections that couple temperature to polarization must be carefully controlled and/or removed. Here we present two new map-making algorithms that can create polarization maps that are clean of temperature-to-polarization leakage systematics due to differential gain and pointing between a detector pair. Where a… Expand
