[en] Graphene oxide (GO) and reduced GO films with different amounts of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) have been deposited on quartz and silicon substrates by matrix assisted pulsed laser evaporation (MAPLE). The morphology, structure, chemical composition, and optical and electrochemical properties were evaluated by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, ultraviolet–visible spectrophotometry, and cyclic voltammetry measurements. The properties of the films obtained with two types of GO precursors have been compared. A reduction of the amount of oxygen containing groups is observed with the increase of the Ag concentration, which leads to a decrease of the optical band gap. Moreover, the deposition in nitrogen gas ambience leads to the N-doping of rGO material. The films obtained with the highest amount of Ag and with nitrogen doping show potential to be used in energy storage electrodes. - Highlights: • Versatile laser deposition of Ag-decorated N-doped reduced graphene oxide thin films. • Optical and electrochemical functional properties are easily tuned. • Initial composition of the graphene oxide precursor determine final films' properties.
