The deposition and optoelectronic properties of reduced graphene oxide thin films are described. Thin films with thicknesses ranging from 1-10 nm have been deposited by the vacuum filtration method. The conductivity of the thin films can be varied over six orders of magnitude by varying the filtration volume of the graphene oxide aqueous suspension while maintaining the transmittance between 60%-95%. In addition, enhancement in the conductance through Cl doping is demonstrated. The combination of the reduction and Cl treatments make the reduced graphene oxide thin films sufficiently conducting to incorporate them as the hole collecting electrode in proof of concept organic photovoltaic devices.
