(2d) materials are few-atom thick solid-state platforms that are being
currently developed as novel alternatives for quantum technologies. The most
prominent class of 2d materials are Transition Metal Dichalcogenides (TMDs),
which are direct-bandgap semiconductors in the limit of one layer. In contrast
to other solid-state quantum platforms that operate in the optical domain, they
offer the potential of good integrability with photonic structures, flexibility
in device design while retaining their 2d nature, as well as good coherence
properties. In this seminar, I will give a broad overview of the current
efforts directed at using TMDs for quantum technologies, with special emphasis
on them being hosts of single-photon emitters, optically active spin qubits,
and many-body physics quantum simulations. I will suggest the next steps for
their control and manipulation and highlight the main open questions and
