Straintronics, as a platform for creating a new generation of information processing devices, as well as a physical basis for the development of elements of flexible electronics using two-dimensional (2D) inorganic materials, is currently one of the intensively developed areas of nanoelectronics. High deformation and tensile properties are one of the attractive properties of the new 2D crystal family. The use of deformations can lead to surprising changes in the electronic properties of 2D materials and van der Waals heterostructures based on them, and to unexpected technological and engineering solutions. Deformation engineering, as a direction of work on the search for possibilities of adjusting the physical properties of materials by controlling elastic deformation fields, is ideal for implementation in atomically thin materials and structures.
