The effect of linearly polarized laser irradiation with various energy densities was successfully used for reduction of graphene oxide (GO). The ion beam analytical methods (RBS, ERDA) were used to follow the elemental composition which is expected as the consequence of GO reduction. The chemical composition analysis was accompanied by structural study showing changed functionalities in the irradiated GO foils using spectroscopy techniques including XPS, FTIR and Raman spectroscopy. The AFM was employed to identify the surface morphology and electric properties evolution were subsequently studied using standard two point method measurement. The used analytical methods report on reduction of irradiated graphene oxide on the surface and the decrease of surface resistivity as a growing function of the laser beam energy density.
