Abstract: The pressurized water reactors, One of the reactors used for power production of electricity. The nominal thermal power output of this hypothetical reactor (3000 MW). The process of fission by thermal neutrons leads to the formation of radioactive products. Calculations were performed using a special program conducted in MATLAB language. The calculation included the effect of neutron flux and thermal power on the production ratio of the isotopes emitting gamma radiation. It has been found that increase of the parameters led to increased production of gamma-ray sources ratio

Keywords: Calculation of Cesium Radioisotopes 134Cs and 137Cs
