We have studied the electronic structure of the triangular lattice Ir 1-xPt xTe 2 superconductor using photoemission spectroscopy and model calculations. Ir 4f core-level photoemission spectra show that Ir 5d t 2g charge modulation established in the low-temperature phase of IrTe 2 is suppressed by Pt doping. This observation indicates that the suppression of charge modulation is related to the emergence of superconductivity. Valence-band photoemission spectra of IrTe 2 suggest that the Ir 5d charge modulation is accompanied by Ir 5d orbital reconstruction. Based on the photoemission results and model calculations, we argue that the orbitally induced Peierls effect governs the charge and orbital instability in Ir 1-xPt xTe 2.
