Although artificial semiconductor heterostructures have long been the core material system for the generation, detection and manipulation of carriers, at TeraHertz (THz) frequencies, the discovery of graphene and the related intriguing abilities have triggered an unprecedented interest in inorganic two-dimensional (2D) materials, as black phosphorus and boron nitride, amongst many others. They offer a unique platform for developing efficient devices, without the need of lattice matching, and
