We have studied the gamma/X‐ray interaction parameters such as mass attenuation coefficient, mean free path (λ), half value layer, 10th value layer, energy‐absorption buildup factors, and variation of electrical conductivity with the energy of gamma/X‐ray between 1 keV and 100 GeV for Kondo insulators such as FeSi, Ce3Bi4Pt3, SmB6, YbB12, CeNiSn, CeRhSb, CeRuSn, and CeFeP. The variation of photon interaction parameters with incident energy of gamma/X‐ray is graphically represented. We have also identified the X‐ray absorption edges for the Kondo insulators. This identified X‐ray absorption edges are useful in the characterizing of Kondo insulators such as FeSi, Ce3Bi4Pt3, SmB6, YbB12, CeNiSn, CeRhSb, CeRuSn, and CeFeP. Hence, these data are also useful in the material science. This type of data for Kondo insulators is not available in literature. Hence, this work is first of its kind, and it is useful in various fields of nuclear physics.
