We report the simulation results of resistive plate chamber for 0.511 MeV photons using FLUKA code. The efficiency of resistive plate chamber is directly related to the number of electrons produced in the gas gap. Therefore, the type of converter materials and thickness are important parameters for resistive plate chamber detection performance. In this work, the FLUKA based simulations for parallel and isotropic photons were operated for detection efficiency by choosing different converter materials and thicknesses.
