In this study, natural iridium consisting of Ir-191 and Ir-193 isotopes has been irradiated with 21 MeV photons. The distribution of photons, electrons and neutrons fluxes in the spherical and cylindrical natural iridium target have been calculated using MCNPX 2.7.0 Monte Carlo code. The intensity of the photon fluxes on both targets has been compared to the 106 particle story by showing them as mesh and optimizing the two targets.
