Monolayers of 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDC) have promising applications due to their unique properties, from optoelectrical to piezoelectric properties. When combined stacked to create heterostructures, they have the potential to greatly improve current sensors, mainly photodetectors and related sensors, and strain sensors. However, there are many obstacles that prevent further understanding. These obstacles depend on the application and properties being sought. This paper aims to review existing literature on TMDC applications and TMDC heterostructures to further understanding of this growing field.
