Copper oxide prepared with various contains of Manganese by chemical spray pyrolysis. Some optical properties are studied from recording the absorption spectra via UV-Visible spectrophotometer in the range of 460-900 nm. The absorbance increased with increasing Mn-contain in the CuO thin films, and the absorption coefficient. Extinction coefficient and refractive index are decreased with increasing Mn-contain in the CuO thin films, also the energy gap shifted from 2 eV to 1.91 eV after 4%Mn additive.
