The aims of this research are the extract of Pheomelanine pigment from red wool and
prepared of it as a thin film by repeat-spray method. We study the optical properties of
the  Pheomelanine  thin  film  such  as  the  absorbance  (A),  Transmittance 
coefficient  (α),  refractive  index  (n)  and  extinction  coefficient  (k).  We  calculate  the
energy  gap ( Eg), Urbach tail (Eu), oscillator energy (Eᵒ), dispersion energy (Erefractive index (nᵒ), static dielectric constant (ε
ᵒ) and spectra moments (M-1and M-3)
