With the innovation of technologies that will impact our daily life such as the internet of things (IoT), wearable health care systems, digitally extended reality, and autonomous vehicles, the development of next-generation optoelectronic devices that possess advanced functionality and high performance has emerged as a substantial component for the evolution of future technology. Two-dimensional (2D) semiconductors have been extensively studied in the exploration of new phenomena and properties that are not seen in conventional bulk semiconductors, especially for optoelectronic applications such as light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and photodetectors. While the majority of existing technology relies on bulk crystalline semiconductors, unprecedented possibilities can be opened up for developing next-generation optoelectronics owing to the unique properties and the tuning capabilities that 2D semiconductors offer.
