Gas bremsstrahlung is generated in high energy electron storage rings through interaction of the electron beam with the residual gas molecules in vacuum chamber. In this paper, Monte Carlo calculation has been performed to evaluate radiation hazard due to gas bremsstrahlung in the Iranian Light Source Facility (ILSF) insertion devices. Shutter/stopper dimensions is determined and dose rate from the photoneutrons via the giant resonance photonuclear reaction which takes place inside the shutter/stopper is also obtained. Some other characteristics of gas bremsstrahlung such as photon fluence, energy spectrum, angular distribution and equivalent dose in tissue equivalent phantom have also been investigated by FLUKA Monte Carlo code.
