Fabrication of organic polymer thin films and organic semiconductors are critical for the development of sophisticated organic thin film based devices. Radio Frequency plasma polymerisation is a well developed and widely used fabrication technique for polymer thin films. This paper describes the fabrication of an organic polymer thin film from a monomer based on Lavandula angustifolia. Several polymer thin films were manufactured with thicknesses ranging from 200 nm to 2400 nm. The energy gap of the polymer thin film was measured to be 2.93 eV. The refractive index and extinction coefficient was determined to be 1.565 (at 500 nm) and 0.01 (at 500 nm) respectively. The organic polymer thin film demonstrates the possibility of an environmentally friendly, cost effective organic semiconductor.
