AbstractSignificant progress has been made in our understanding of the power of polarization maps in the submillimeter and millimeter in the past decade. This is made more remarkable by the dearth of new polarimetric facilities over the past 10 years and decommissioning of several long-standing instruments. In particular, we discuss recent work to establish the validity of the previously measured polarization spectrum in the submillimeter, and the enhanced analysis techniques presented in recent years for the interpretation of polarization position angle data without the need for models of the ordered field geometry.
