Strain engineering is a natural route to control the electronic and optical properties of two-dimensional (2D) materials. Strain engineering is not only responsible for the activation of quantum light emission in 2D materials but can also be used to dynamically tune their photophysical properties. We are interested in understanding the effects of static and dynamic strain tuning of localized emitters in monolayer crystals as well as van der Waals heterostructure.
