Pressure effects on the electron transport and structure of Nd1−xSrxMnO3 (x = 0.45, 0.5) were investigated in the range from ambient to ∼6 GPa. In Nd0.55Sr0.45MnO3, the low-temperature ferromagnetic metallic state is suppressed and a low-temperature insulating state is induced by pressure. In Nd0.5Sr0.5MnO3, the CE-type antiferromagnetic charge-ordering state is suppressed by pressure. Under pressure, both samples have a similar electron-transport behavior although their ambient ground states are much different. It is surmised that pressure induces an A-type antiferromagnetic state at low temperature in both compounds.
