Two-dimensional (2D) atomic crystals have emerged as a very attractive class of photonic material due to the unprecedented strength in its interaction with light. In this talk I will discuss approaches to enhance the strength of this interaction even further using microcavities, and metamaterials. Specifically I will discuss enhancement of spontaneous emission, formation of strongly coupled exciton-photon quasiparticles and enhanced nonlinear optical response from 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMD) embedded in such structures. Potential applications of such structures with controlled exciton-photon interaction and the use of unique valley properties in these TMDs will also be addressed. Finally, I will also briefly discuss our recent work on room temperature single photon emission from hexagonal boron nitride and the prospects of developing robust quantum emitters using them.
