This report comprises the results of a study to: (1) Define and place realistic limits upon the needs of epidemiologists for personal pollutant dosimeters; (2) Identify pollutant-sensing principles that offer reasonable opportunity for early development of functioning dosimeters capable of operating with the limits of (1) above; (3) Project the impact of mechanical and electronic miniaturization techniques upon each of the principal options disclosed in (2) above; (4) Assess the cost/benefit aspects of active vs. passive sampling of the atmosphere, as applied to candidate sensors identified in (1), (2) and (3) above; (5) Assess the advantages, if any, of a systems approach to dosimeter development, in which the design of a sensor for a given pollutant would be constrained to make maximum use of components and subassemblies common to sensors for other pollutants. The study reported on has been arbitrarily limited to consideration of devices applicable to the measurement of ozone, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide. The principles developed will apply in some degree to the eventual design of dosimeters for other pollutants.
