In this paper we present the recent improvements for optically stimulated luminescence dosimetry using ordinary salt (NaCl). It is shown that the dosimetric properties of NaCl may be improved by compressing the salt grains to solid pellets. With a linear dose response in, at least, the region <100 mGy, a zero background signal (when pre-bleached) and a minimum measurable dose of 10-20 μGy and high reproducibility, this opens for new applications of prospective OSL dosimetry with NaCl.
