Abstract

In this communication, we report a new-phase 2M WSe2 with a monoclinic space group C2/m. 2M WSe2 presents a metallic behavior under ambient pressure and shows a superconducting transition with a maximum Tc of 7.3 K at 10.7 GPa, which arises from the enhanced density of states near the Fermi surface upon pressurization.
