An analysis of the main radiological warfare agents and of the different types of detectors for them is performed. The basic principles of the most common detection methods are described. The aim of the study is to outline the main challenges in this field. The possibility for applications of the Surface photo-charge effect in the field of detection of radiological warfare agents is discussed. An emphasis is put on the simulation of the radioactive substances during the performing of experiments.
