MoTe2 is a rare transition-metal ditelluride having two kinds of layered polytypes, hexagonal structure with trigonal prismatic Mo coordination and monoclinic structure with octahedral Mo coordination. The monoclinic distortion in the latter is caused by anisotropic metal-metal bonding. In this work, we have examined the Nb
effect on both polytypes of MoTe2 and clarified a structural
phase diagram for Mo
Te2 containing four kinds of polytypes. A rhombohedral polytype crystallizing in polar space group has been newly identified as a high-temperature metastable phase at slightly Nb-rich composition. Considering the results of thermoelectric measurements and the first-principles calculations, the Nb ion seemingly acts as a hole dopant in the rigid band scheme. On the other hand, the significant interlayer contraction upon the Nb
doping, associated with the Te p-p hybridization, is confirmed especially for the monoclinic phase, which implies a shift of the p-band energy level. The origin of the metal-metal bonding in the monoclinic structure is discussed in terms of the d electron counting and the Te p-p hybridization.
