Graphene oxide foils were irradiated by Nd:YAG laser at the moderated intensities of the order of 108 W/cm2 in vacuum. Measurements of atomic emission during the laser irradiation were performed with ion collectors and mass spectrometry, demonstrating a strong emission of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen atoms. Further investigations of the irradiated graphene oxide foils were carried out on pristine and laser irradiated samples by using Rutherford backscattering spectrometry and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Results indicate that graphene oxide losses oxygen and hydrogen during the irradiation, changing its carbon content and its chemical and physical properties.
