MAXIMA is a bolometric-based balloon-borne experiment that has measured temperature anisotropy in the cosmic microwave background radiation during flights in 1998 and 1999. MAXIPOL, which is based on the MAXIMA high sensitivity receiver, is designed to measure the polarization anisotropy of the CMB and is scheduled to be launched in May 2002. We discuss the status of our analysis of the data obtained from the MAXIMA-I and -II flights and describe MAXIPOL and its expected capabilities. The MAXIMA experiment was supported by NASA through grants NAG5-4454, and NAG5-3941, and by the Center for Particle Astrophysics, a National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center operated by the University of California, Berkeley, under Cooperative Agreement No. AST-9120005. MAXIPOL is supported by NASA through grant NAG5-9349.
