Next-generation quantum technologies will require building blocks with fundamentally new (quantum) functionalities. How can we use the ever-growing family of two-dimensional materials, offering us versatile and highly tunable properties, to develop innovative quantum technologies? I will report some examples from my recent work on the tunability of several 2D materials, e.g., by twisting, external fields, strain, and gating. I will demonstrate how the material's properties translate into nanostructures such as electrostatically induced bilayer graphene quantum wires and dots. Building on this, we will develop ideas for two-dimensional materials-based components for quantum technologies.
