Abstract

We analyze the effect of polarized diffuse emission in the calibration of wide-beam millimeter-wave polarimeters, when using the Crab Nebula as a reference source for both polarized brightness and polarization angle. We show that, for CMB polarization experiments aiming at detecting B-mode in a scenario with a tensor to scalar ratio r ∼ 0.001, wide (a few degrees in diameter), precise (σ Q, σ U ∼ 20, μ K CMB {arcmin}), high angular resolution (
