A cost effective method to tailor the optical response of large‐area nanosheets of 2D materials is described. A reduced effective metalayer model is introduced to capture the key‐role of the out‐of‐plane component of the dielectric tensor. Such a model indicates that the optical extinction of 2D materials can be strongly altered by controlling the geometry at the local (i.e., subwavelength) scale. In particular, a giant linear optical dichroism at normal incidence is demonstrated, with major features around the excitonic peaks, that can be tailored by acting on the average curvature and slope of the nanosheets. The approach is experimentally demonstrated in few‐layer MoS2 grown by chemical vapor deposition on cm‐scale anisotropic nanopatterned substrates prepared by a self‐assembling technique, based on defocused ion beam sputtering. Major variations in the photoluminescence spectrum as a function of the …
