We have performed a comprehensive study of the temperature-induced phase-transition in transition metal dichalcogenide (TMDC) Mo1-XWXTe2 using ARPES, including linear and circular dichroism in the angular distribution (CDAD/LDAD), X-ray photoelectron diffraction (XPD) and spectroscopy (XPS) of the core-levels, Raman and X-ray diffraction (XRD) measurements at
different temperatures. Based on detailed structural information from XRD measurements,
calculations of XPD patterns were made using the Bloch-wave approach. It was found that the orthorhombic phase of MoTe2 shows inversion symmetry breaking and topological states and therefore has wide spectrum of potential applications.
