High external pressure is a powerful tool to change electronic properties of matter. Here we have studied the electronic transport properties of β
-polymorph of molybdenum ditelluride (MoTe2
is theoretically predicted to be a Weyl-semimetal with band structure around the Fermi level extremely sensitive to change in the lattice constants. At ambient pressure, β
is a superconductor with critical temperature of superconductivity (Tc
) as low as 0.1 K. We have found, that application of pressure drastically increases the Tc
of this Weyl-semimetal up to »8K.
