AB  - The need for stable, chemical resistant and conductive materials is on the rise in recent times. Graphene shows promising electrical conductivity and chemical stability, but the production of a continual, conductive layer is limited and expensive. Silver nanowires (AgNWs) are both conducive and economically viable, but they are sensitive to water and oxygen. In this study, graphene oxide (GO) and AgNWs were synthesized and combined in different mass ratios (3:1, 2.5:1.5, and 1:1) to obtain chemically stable composites with improved electrical properties. Composites were reduced using ascorbic acid. With the increase of AgNWs to GO mass ratio, the surface of the free-standing composite film improved: the root mean square roughness was lowered from 376 nm for GO to 168 nm for the composite with the mass ratio of GO:AgNWs 1:1, while the sheet resistance was lowered from 146 × 106 Ω/□ to 4 Ω/□. For the first time, the effects of gamma irradiation on the structure of the composites were studied. Doses of 15, 25, and 35 kGy were applied.

AB  - Nowadays, a larger number of aggressive and corrosive chemical reagents as well as toxic solvents are used to achieve structural modification and cleaning of the final products. These lead to the production of residual, waste chemicals, which are often reactive, cancerogenic, and toxic to the environment. This study shows a new approach to the modification of graphene quantum dots (GQDs) using gamma irradiation where the usage of reagents was avoided. We achieved the incorporation of S and N atoms in the GQD structure by selecting an aqueous solution of L-cysteine as an irradiation medium. GQDs were exposed to gamma-irradiation at doses of 25, 50 and 200 kGy. After irradiation, the optical, structural, and morphological properties, as well as the possibility of their use as an agent in bioimaging and photodynamic therapy, were studied. We measured an enhanced quantum yield of photoluminescence with the highest dose of 25 kGy (21.60%). Both S- and N-functional groups were detected in all gamma-irradiated GQDs: amino, amide, thiol, and thione. Spin trap electron paramagnetic resonance showed that GQDs irradiated with 25 kGy can generate singlet oxygen upon illumination. Bioimaging on HeLa cells showed the best visibility for cells treated with GQDs irradiated with 25 kGy, while cytotoxicity was not detected after treatment of HeLa cells with gamma-irradiated GQDs.

AB  - Exosomes (EXOs) are nano-sized vesicles secreted by most cell types. They are abundant in bio-fluids and harbor specific molecular constituents from their parental cells. Due to these characteristics, EXOs have a great potential in cancer diagnostics for liquid biopsy and personalized medicine. Despite this unique potential, EXOs are not yet widely applied in clinical settings, with two main factors hindering their translational process in diagnostics. Firstly, conventional extraction methods are time-consuming, require large sample volumes and expensive equipment, and often do not provide high-purity samples. Secondly, characterization methods have some limitations, because they are often qualitative, need extensive labeling or complex sampling procedures that can induce artifacts. In this context, novel label-free approaches are rapidly emerging, and are holding potential to revolutionize EXO diagnostics. These methods include the use of nanodevices for EXO purification, and vibrational spectroscopies, scattering, and nanoindentation for characterization. In this progress report, we summarize recent key advances in label-free techniques for EXO purification and characterization. We point out that these methods contribute to reducing costs and processing times, provide complementary information compared to the conventional characterization techniques, and enhance flexibility, thus favoring the discovery of novel and unexplored EXO-based biomarkers. In this process, the impact of nanotechnology is systematically highlighted, showing how the effectiveness of these techniques can be enhanced using nanomaterials, such as plasmonic nanoparticles and nanostructured surfaces, which enable the exploitation of advanced physical phenomena occurring at the nanoscale level.

AB  - We investigated the ability of graphene quantum dot (GQD) nanoparticles to protect SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells from oxidative/nitrosative stress induced by iron-nitrosyl complex sodium nitroprusside (SNP).GQD reduced SNP cytotoxicity by preventing mitochondrial depolarization, caspase-2 activation, and subsequent apoptotic death. Although GQD diminished the levels of nitric oxide (NO) in SNP-exposed cells, NO scavengers displayed only a slight protective effect, suggesting that NO quenching was not the main protective mechanism of GQD. GQD also reduced SNP-triggered increase in the intracellular levels of hydroxyl radical (•OH), superoxide anion (O2•- ), and lipid peroxidation. Nonselective antioxidants, •OH scavenging, and iron chelators, but not superoxide dismutase, mimicked GQD cytoprotective activity, indicating that GQD protect cells by neutralizing •OH generated in the presence of SNP-released iron. Cellular internalization of GQD was required for optimal protection, since a removal of extracellular GQD by extensive washing only partly diminished their protective effect. Moreover, GQD cooperated with SNP to induce autophagy, as confirmed by the inhibition of autophagylimiting Akt/PRAS40/mTOR signaling and increase in autophagy gene transcription, protein levels of proautophagic beclin-1 and LC3-II, formation of autophagic vesicles, and degradation of autophagic target p62. The antioxidant activity of GQD was not involved in autophagy induction, as antioxidants N-acetylcysteine and dimethyl sulfoxide failed to stimulate autophagy in SNP-exposed cells. Pharmacological inhibitors of early (wortmannin, 3-methyladenine) or late stages of autophagy (NH4Cl) efficiently reduced the protective effect of GQD. Therefore, the ability of GQD to prevent the in vitro neurotoxicity of SNP depends on both •OH/NO scavenging and induction of cytoprotective autophagy.

Graphene as a carbon allotrope since the discovery has attracted enormous attention due to several extraordinary properties that originate from its physical and chemical assets. However, the most important obstacle in graphene assembly still is the production of high-quality graphene on a large scale using cost-effective methods. The presented review article aims to give information on a turning point in graphene synthesis, with reference to a detailed analysis of electrochemical exfoliation, rapid thermal annealing and biomass pyrolysis. Selected methods for graphene and graphene-based nanomaterials production were not covered in the literature to their maximum potential, from our point of view. Through an overview of the selected synthesis methods, we explored their prospects and limitations regarding precursor type and reaction conditions. Furthermore, through several important characterization techniques for graphene, we reveal the details of the properties of graphene and graphene-based nanomaterials obtained through selected methods. Finally, a particular potential application depending on nanomaterial properties obtained through selected methods was pointed out.

AB  - Persistent microbial contamination of medical implant surfaces is becoming a serious threat to public health. This is principally due to antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains and the formation of bacterial biofilms. The development of novel antibacterial materials that will effectively fight both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and prevent biofilm formation represents a big challenge for researchers in the last few decades. In the present work, we report an antibacterial hydrophobic carbon quantum dots/polyurethane nanocomposite (hCQD-PU), with enhanced antibacterial properties induced by pre-treatment with gamma-irradiation. Hydrophobic quantum dots (hCQDs), which are capable of generating reactive oxygen species (ROS) upon irradiation with low-power blue light (470 nm), have been integrated into the polyurethane (PU) polymer matrix to form a photoactive nanocomposite. To modify its physical and chemical properties and improve its antibacterial efficacy, various doses of gamma irradiation (1, 10, and 200 kGy) in the air environment were applied to the formed nanocomposite. Gamma-irradiation pre-treatment significantly influenced the rise in ROS production, therefore, the prooxidative activity under the blue-light illumination of hCQD-PU was also significantly improved. The best antibacterial activity was demonstrated by the hCQD-PU nanocomposite irradiated with a dose of 200 kGy, with the complete eradication of Gram-positive Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) and Gram-negative Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria after 15 min of exposure to the blue lamp. © 2021 Elsevier Ltd

AB  - Due to their low cost and possible green synthesis, high stability and resistance to photobleaching, graphene quantum dots (GQDs) can be considered as one of the class of carbon nanomaterials which may have great potential as an agent for photosensitized oxygen activation. In such a way, GQDs can be used as a theranostic agent in photodynamic therapy. In this work pristine GQDs, GQDs irradiated with gamma rays and GQDs doped with N and N, S atoms are produced using a simple, green approach. By using different techniques (AFM, HR-TEM, SEM-EDS, FTIR, XRD, PL and UV–Vis) we investigated structural and optical properties of the new types of GQDs. We showed that GQDs functionalized with thiourea (GQDs-TU) completely lost the ability to produce singlet oxygen (1O2) upon photoexcitation while functionalization with urea (GQDs-U) improves the capability of GQDs to produce 1O2 upon the same conditions. Thus, presented GQDs modification with urea seems like a promising approach for the production of the efficient photosensitizer. On the opposite, GQDs-TU are efficient [rad]OH quencher. Due to high singlet oxygen production and low cytotoxicity below 100 μg/mL against HeLa cells, GQDs-U is a good candidate as an agent in photodynamic therapy at this concentration. © 2019

AB  - Due to the low consumption of chemicals, the absence of toxic residual side products, the procedure simplicity and time-saving aspects, gamma irradiation offers advantages over the classical chemical protocols. We successfully employed gamma irradiation in order to introduce N-atoms in Graphene Quantum Dots (GQDs). By irradiating GQDs water dispersions in the presence of isopropyl alcohol and ethylenediamine, at doses of 25, 50 and 200 kGy, we attached amino groups onto GQDs in a single synthetic step. At the same time, a chemical reduction is achieved, too. Selected conditions induced incorporation of N-atoms within GDQs atomic lattice (around 3 at%), at all applied doses. Additionally, the C-atoms percentage was highly increased, from 63 to 79 at % or higher. The zeta potential of dots changed from −34.6 to +9.1 mV, due to the modification of functionalizing groups localized at the surface. Produced chemical changes lead to the desired alteration of the GQDs optical properties, such as an increased photoluminescence intensity, a higher photoluminescence quantum yields (from 2.07 to 18.40%) and a narrowing of the spectral features in the emission spectra. The ability of gamma-irradiated GQDs to quench free radical species was investigated and positively assessed; additionally, non-enzymatic optical detection of Cu(II) ions using GQDs as a sensor was studied and the detection limits areherein reported. These results suggest that GQDs can be potentially applied as smart photoluminescent sensors for metal cations.

At the same time, a chemical reduction is achieved, too. Selected conditions induced incorporation of N-atoms within GDQs atomic lattice (around 3 at%), at all applied doses. Additionally, the C-atoms percentage was highly increased, from 63 to 79 at % or higher. The zeta potential of dots changed from −34.6 to +9.1 mV, due to the modification of functionalizing groups localized at the surface. Produced chemical changes lead to the desired alteration of the GQDs optical properties, such as an increased photoluminescence intensity, a higher photoluminescence quantum yields (from 2.07 to 18.40%) and a narrowing of the spectral features in the emission spectra. The ability of gamma-irradiated GQDs to quench free radical species was investigated and positively assessed; additionally, non-enzymatic optical detection of Cu(II) ions using GQDs as a sensor was studied and the detection limits areherein reported. These results suggest that GQDs can be potentially applied as smart photoluminescent sensors for metal cations.",

AB  - Photoactive materials called photosensitizers can be used for treatment of different types of cancer in combination with light source. In this paper, we have investigated pro-oxidant and antioxidant potentials of four graphene based nanomaterials (graphene oxide-GO, graphene quantum dots-GQDs, carbon quantum dots-CQDs and N-doped carbon quantum dots-N-CQDs) depending on the presence/absence of visible light source. Structural and optical properties of these materials and their potentials for reactive oxygen species generation/quenching are investigated by applying different microscopy and spectroscopy techniques (transmission electron microscopy, FTIR, UV–Vis, photoluminescence, electron paramagnetic resonance). Results show that all types of quantum dots has pro-oxidant and antioxidant potentials whereas GO demonstrated only moderate antioxidant effect. The best free radical scavenger is CQDs sample in the absence of light. CQDs are the best singlet oxygen generator under blue light irradiation as well. To check photo-cytotoxicity of these materials, photo-cytotoxic concentrations of the GO, GQDs, CQDs and N-CQDs were determined for three cellular lines: human rhabdomyosarcoma (RD), cell line derived from human cervix carcinoma Hep2c (HeLa) and fibroblast cell line from murine (L2OB). Cytotoxicity test has indicated that all samples are much less photocytotoxic than cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (cis-DPP). The production method and doping of quantum dots affect the photodynamic activity of tested samples very much.

AB  - We investigated the therapeutic capacity of nano-sized graphene sheets, called graphene quantum dots (GQD), in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), an animal model of immune-mediated central nervous system (CNS) damage. Intraperitoneally administered GQD (10 mg/kg/day) accumulated in the lymph node and CNS cells of Dark Agouti rats in which EAE was induced by immunization with spinal cord homogenate in complete Freund's adjuvant. GQD significantly reduced clinical signs of EAE when applied throughout the course of the disease (day 0–32), while the protection was less pronounced if the treatment was limited to the induction (day 0–7 post-immunization) or effector (from day 8 onwards) phase of the disease. GQD treatment diminished immune infiltration, demyelination, axonal damage, and apoptotic death in the CNS of EAE animals. GQD also reduced the numbers of interferon-γ-expressing T helper (Th)1 cells, as well as the expression of Th1 transcription factor T-bet and proinflammatory cytokines tumor necrosis factor, interleukin-1, and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor in the lymph nodes and CNS immune infitrates. The protective effect of GQD in EAE was associated with the activation of p38 and p42/44 mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK) and Akt in the lymph nodes and/or CNS. Finally, GQD protected oligodendrocytes and neurons from T cell-mediated damage in the in vitro conditions. Collectively, these data demonstrate the ability of GQD to gain access to both immune and CNS cells during neuroinflammation, and to alleviate immune-mediated CNS damage by modulating MAPK/Akt signaling and encephalitogenic Th1 immune response. © 2018 Elsevier Ltd

AB  - Due to controversial reports concerning antibacterial activity of different graphene based materials it is very important to investigate their antibacterial action on a wide range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. In this paper we have investigated the structure induced phototoxic antibacterial activity of four types of graphene based materials: graphene oxide (GO), graphene quantum dots (GQDs), carbon quantum dots (CQDs) and nitrogen doped carbon quantum dots (N-CQDs). Antibacterial activity was tested on 19 types of bacteria. It is found that nanometer-size CQDs and N-CQDs are the most potent agents whereas micrometer-size GO has very poor antibacterial activity. Electron paramagnetic resonance measurements confirmed photodynamic production of singlet oxygen for all types of used quantum dots. Detailed analysis has shown that N-CQDs are an excellent photodynamic antibacterial agent for treatment of bacterial infections induced by Enterobacter aerogenes (E. aerogenes), Proteus mirabilis (P. mirabilis), Staphylococcus saprophyticus (S. saprophyticus), Listeria monocytogenes (L. monocytogenes), Salmonella typhimurium (S. typhimurium) and Klebsiella pneumoniae.

AB  - © 2018 Antibacterial properties of graphene oxide (GO) have been studied extensively in the last few years, while for polyoxometalates there are just a few researches. Herein, we prepared nanocomposites of GO and different amounts of 12-molybdophosphoric acid (MoPA) and analyzed their antibacterial activity and both structural and morphological properties. In nanocomposites with higher amounts of MoPA, graphene sheets were significantly changed with disrupted flat, graphene-like morphology of GO. In the nanocomposites with low MoPA content, flat GO morphology was preserved. Additionally, structural analyses showed some changes in symmetry of the Keggin anion as a consequence of interactions between GO and MoPA, the increase in structural disorder and the lowering of electron density in GO structure due to interaction with MoPA. We have studied antibacterial properties on the gram-positive: Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Bacillus subtilis; and the gram-negative bacteria: Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella abony. Only a mild antibacterial effect of GO and nanocomposites with low amount of MoPA against Bacillus subtilis was observed, while the rest of analyzed materials did not show any antibacterial activity.

AB  - Apart from unique physical, chemical, mechanical and thermal properties, carbon-based nanomaterials exhibit unusual optical behavior. Photoluminescence (PL) of these materials is particularly interesting considering that bulk carbon materials such as graphite and diamond do not show luminescent properties. The subject of the chapter is fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, graphene, graphene oxide, graphene and carbon quantum dots. In this chapter, firstly the general physical and chemical properties of different carbonbased nanomaterials are presented, such as the crystalline structure, morphology and chemicals composition. Difference between dimensionality, type of hybridization of C atoms, the level of oxidation, size and shape are explained considering that these are key characteristics which determinate the optical behavior of these materials. In the following part of chapter, the origin of PL in different carbonbased nanomaterials, mechanisms and the tunability of the photoluminescence properties are discussed: exciton pairs which lead to PL of carbon nanotubes, defect centers such as of impurities or vacancies in nanodiamonds, different size of conjugated π-domains in reduced graphene oxide, suggested mechanisms of PL for graphene quantum dots, surface chromophores and defects in carbon quantum dots, etc. The PL properties such as emission spectra, excitation wavelengths, PL lifetimes as well as PL quantum yields are compared between different carbon-based nanomaterials. Furthermore, the parameters which affect these PL properties are argued. Additionally, the possibilities of application of carbon-based nanomaterials due to its PL properties are analyzed. Taking into account other physicochemical as well as PL properties, the most promising applications are highlighted, such as in bioimaging, drug delivery, sensing, in organoelectronic devices and others.

AB  - Graphene as a new material is in the spotlight due to its extraordinary properties and wide range of potential applications. Chemical vapour deposition, as a method for graphene synthesis from gaseous hydrocarbon sources has great promises for large-scale graphene synthesis. However, for such grow high temperatures of 800-1000 degrees C are typically required. Here we demonstrate synthesis of single-layer and bi-layer graphene thin films of approximately 10,m in size by rapid thermal annealing process at low annealing temperature such as 600 degrees C. Synthesis was performed on copper foil from graphene quantum dots and fullerenol as solid carbon sources at different concentrations. Raman spectroscopy study has shown that the number of grown graphene layers depends on the carbon source concentration. The quality of formed graphene layers withal depends on the carbon source and its concentration, whereby graphene from graphene quantum dots had better quality. (C) 2016 Elsevier Ltd.

AB  - Curcumin and its derivates are well-known for their different biological activities including antibacterial. On the other hand there are controversial reports concerning the antibacterial potential of graphene and, in particular, graphene oxide. In this study we have reported for the first time the antibacterial activity of curcumin/graphene nanomesh hybrids under ambient light conditions. The graphene nanomesh was synthesized by electrochemical exfoliation of highly oriented pyrolytic graphite in 1 M solution of ammonium persulfate and further functionalized by curcumin. Identical values of minimum inhibitory concentration (1 mg mL(-1)) were determined for pure curcumin and curcumin/graphene nanomesh hybrids toward Staphylococcus aureus. All tested samples had more pronounced antibacterial activity against Gram positive bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus compared to Escherichia coli as a representative of Gram negative strains. The poor antibacterial potential of exfoliated graphene improves significantly by the functionalization with curcumin, which allows for its usage as a antibacterial coating.

Two most relevant biological features of this material are its electrical conductivity and excellent water dispersibility. In this study we have tried to establish the correlation between graphene structure and its antibacterial properties. The exfoliation process was performed in a two electrode-highly oriented pyrolytic graphite electrochemical cell. Solution of ammonium persulfate was used as an electrolyte. Exfoliated graphene sheets were dispersed in aqueous media and characterized by atomic force microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, X photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, electron paramagnetic resonance, zeta potential, contact angle measurements and surface energy. Antibacterial assays have shown lack of the significant antibacterial activity. Major effect on bacteria was slight change of bacteria morphology. Membrane remained intact despite significant change of chemical content of membrane components. (C) 2017 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

AB  - Different approaches for enhancement of the graphene quantum dots (GQDs) photoluminescence have been developed lately. We report modified electrochemical procedure for GQDs synthesis. Graphitic rods were thermal annealing at 1700 degrees C in vacuum and used for electrochemical quantum dots synthesis. We found that the modified GQDs (GQDs-1700) consist of two while in the structure of pristine (p-GQDs) three graphene layers are measured. The main structural difference between GQDs is the increased structural disorder, caused by a higher amount of the oxygen containing functional groups in the structure of GQDs-1700. The photoluminescence of GQDs-1700 is 4 times more intense, red shifted and with doubled Quantum Yield compared to p-GQDs. In addition, the changes in electrochemical behavior of GQDs are observed: the higher capacitance was noticed if GQDs posses more reducible functional groups, such as peroxyl, aldehyde and epoxy groups while increase in keto functional groups leads to the lower capacitance.

AB  - A novel electrochemically exfoliated graphene-molybdophosphoric acid nanohybride (EG-MoPA) was prepared via a simple method. Both scanning electron (SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) results show that MoPA clusters are attached to the surfaces of graphene sheets. By changing the mass ratio of EG-MoPA, the morphology of nanohybrid itself can be significantly modulated, from mostly flat graphene like structure at low amount of MoPA to very uneven, wavy surfaces when MoPA is present in higher concentration. The Raman and Fourier transform infra red (FTIR) spectra in conjunction with electrochemical results indicate that strong interaction exists between the components of nanohybride based on charge transfer and electrostatic interaction of graphene sheets and MoPA. The electrochemical performances are improved by synergetic effect of reversible redox properties of MoPA and the double layer capacitance of a high-surface area of the obtained nanohybrides. The higher current capability of EG was achieved by anchoring the small MoPA concentration on the graphene support. The strong bonding of EG with the MoPA prevents acid to dissolve in the electrolyte upon cycling, enabling the stable capacitance behaviour of the low-doped EG sample. The capacitance for the EG doped with the high amount of MoPA was found to be much larger than for EG. However, the obtained capacitance decreases at the beginning of cycling due to the dissolution of excessive amount of surface MoPA, weakly bonded to the graphene support. (C) 2016 Elsevier Ltd.

AB  - Heteropoly acids (HPAs) have found wide applications, such as in catalysis, energy conversion and storage, analytical chemistry, clinical medicine, materials science and others, but their use is limited due to their low surface area and high solubility in water. One of the possible ways to overcome these obstacles is to use height specific surface area supports for HPAs, such as carbon nanomaterials. Raman spectroscopy was applied for a studying the interaction between HPAs and highly ordered pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) as a model of a support. HOPG was exposed to two different HPAs: 12-tungsto-phosphoric acid and 12-molybodphosphoric acid, at different concentrations. It was noticed that 12-molybodphosphoric acid had stronger effects on the HOPG structure causing a weak doping and an increase of structural disorder. It was supposed that HOPG interacts with especially external oxygen atoms of 12-molybodphosphoric acid. Atomic force microscopy showed that the surface roughness of HOPG treated with 12-molybodphosphoric acid increases with increasing acid concentration, while in the case of HOPG exposed to 12-tungsto-phosphoric acid, the surface roughness concentration independent. The growth trend in the measured surface roughness (RMS) was in the agreement with the changes in the intensity ratio I-D/I-G obtained from the Raman spectra of the HOPG samples treated with 12-molybdophosphoric acid.

AB  - In this paper, we present a novel method for graphene nanoribbons formation using nickel nanowires as templates. Modification of electrochemical procedure for nickel nanowires synthesis was introduced by implementing graphene quantum dots as a carbon source. Thus, nickel nanowires with graphene quantum dots were prepared. These wires were exposed to rapid thermal annealing at high temperatures (500 degrees C, 700 degrees C and 800 degrees C). During this process carbon atoms dissolve in metal and precipitate to the nickel surface forming nickel-carbon nanowires. Atomic force microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and Raman spectroscopy were characterization methods used for analysis of changes in nickel-carbon nanowires properties depending on the different annealing temperatures. After etching nickel with nitric acid, graphene nanoribbons with average diameters of 32 nm and average lengths of 4 mu m were obtained. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

AB  - In this work, we present Raman spectroscopy study of graphene thin films obtained by rapid thermal annealing in vacuum. As a carbon source, we used spectroscopic graphite electrodes cut into small pieces on top of which we deposited copper/nickel thin films. Samples were then annealed at different annealing temperatures (600, 700, 800 and 900 degrees C) for 30 min. Raman spectroscopy study showed that annealing at lower annealing temperatures (600 and 700 degrees C) leads to formation of single layer graphene thin films with relatively high level of defects. Annealing at higher annealing temperatures (800 and 900 degrees C), on the other hand, resulted in formation of homogenous multilayer graphene thin films. From Raman spectra, we also concluded that samples annealed at higher annealing temperatures had lower level of defects compared to the samples annealed at lower annealing temperatures.
