With the increasing use of nuclear energy, particularly for power production, there is need for radiation detection and dose assessment. There is every need for the development of portable dosimeters for personal and environmental monitoring in the fields like medicine, nuclear engineering, space exploration, etc. Attempts are being made to develop portable solid state .dosimeters for insitu measurements by utilising the techniques like thermoluminescence, therm.~lly stimulated currents and optically stirnulaled luminescence. Some of the salient features of the above techniques for various types of dosimeters are described and discussed in this paper.
