There has been a surge in two-dimensional (2D) materials field since the discovery of graphene in 2004. Recently, a new class of layered atomically thin materials that exhibit in-plane structural anisotropy, such as black phosphorous, transition metal trichalcogenides and rhenium dichalcogenides (ReS2), have attracted great attention. The reduced symmetry in these novel 2D materials gives rise to highly anisotropic physical properties that enable unique applications in next-gen electronics and optoelectronics.
