Abstract: Graphene oxide (GO) thin films on glass and plastic substrates were found to display interesting broadband nonlinear optical properties. We have investigated their optical limiting activity for femtosecond laser pulses at 800 and 400 nm, which could be tuned by controlling the extent of reduction. The as-prepared GO films were found to exhibit excellent broadband optical limiting behaviors, which were significantly enhanced upon partial reduction by using laser irradiation or chemical reduction methods. The laser-induced reduction of GO resulted in enhancement of effective two-photon absorption coefficient at 400 nm by up to ∼19 times and enhancement of effective two- and three-photon absorption coefficients at 800 nm by ∼12 and ∼14.5 times, respectively. The optical limiting thresholds of partially reduced GO films are much lower than those of various previously reported materials. Highly reduced GO films prepared by using the chemical method displayed strong saturable absorption behavior. © 2012 American Chemical Society.
