Recently there has been a surge of interest in 2D materials with properties drastically different from the same materials in the bulk form. Notable examples include graphene, surface states in topological insulators, and monolayers of transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). In this talk we discuss some of the exciting and unique optical properties of these 2D electron systems. We show that massless Dirac electrons in graphene give rise to an extremely strong mid/far-infrared optical nonlinearity, perhaps the highest among known materials. Giant optical nonlinearity enables efficient generation of terahertz radiation, excitation of coherent surface plasmons, and tip-enhanced nonlinear spectroscopy utilizing surface plasmons which provides nanometer spatial resolution and femtosecond time resolution. Quantum optics of graphene and TMD monolayers promises efficient generation of polarization-entangled light, entangled plasmon-polaritons, and spin/valley-entangled exciton states. We will also discuss feasibility of lasers and other optoelectronic devices based on these fascinating materials.
