Abstract: The Near-IR Imaging Spectropolarimeter (NIRIS) is a polarimeter that is installed at the New Solar Telescope at Big Bear Solar Observatory. This instrument takes advantage of the highest spatial resolution and flux. The primary mirror is an off-axis type, so it was our interest to evaluate its contribution to the crosstalk among the Stokes parameters since we could not put our calibration optics before the mirror. We would like to present our efforts to compensate for the crosstalk among Stokes profiles caused by the relay optics from the telescope to the detector. The overall data processing pipeline is also introduced.
