Abstract
In this note, we discuss the prospect of accurate measurements of cosmic microwave background (CMB) polarization rotation with future surveys. We focus on instrumental issues, analyzing the required improvements in detection methods and calibration procedures, and discuss the impact of these requirements in the design and optimization of forthcoming CMB polarimeters.
