Context -Two-dimensional semiconductors such as transition metal dichalcogenides (2D TMDs) have garnered significant interest due to their unique electronic and optical properties. These physical properties combined with their flexibility, mechanical strength, processability and integrability hold promise for applications in next-generation (opto-)electronics, photonics, and quantum technologies. Specifically, the high sensitivity of TMD to their local environment and external fields is particularly relevant for applications in quantum sensing.
