Abstract
The recent progress in our work to implement salt (NaCl) as a dosemeter is presented. Laboratory investigations have indicated a linear dose response from 1 mGy to about 100 mGy and detection limits down to 0.1 mGy. Investigations in the clinic comparing TL-dosimetry in LiF and OSL in NaCl have indicated a similar dose response for the two dosemeters at different photon energies. Field studies with stationary dosemeter kits containing TLDs (LiF) and NaCl suggests that salt is also a good candidate for environmental monitoring of radiation.
