Semiconductive thin organic polymer films have been prepared by the plasma polymerization of 1-benzothiophene. Characteristics of the polymeric products such as their electrical conductivities, optical properties, and electron spin properties have been examined in detail. Doping of these films with iodine has resulted in an increase in electrical conductivity by eight to nine orders of magnitude. The molecular structure of the products has also been discussed.
