## Abstract

The pressure dependence on the superconducting transition temperature (T _{c} ) was investigated for the iron-based superconductors LaFeAsO _{1-x} F _{x} and SmFeAsO _{1-x} F _{x} . The T _{c} 's increase largely for LaFeAsO _{1-x} F _{x} with a small increase of pressure, while a sharp decrease of T _{c} was observed for SmFeAsO _{1-x} F _{x} . The electrical resistivity measurements reveal pressure-induced superconductivity for undoped LaFeAsO and SmFeAsO. These pressure effects seem to be related to an anisotropic decrease of the lattice constants under high pressure from the x-ray diffraction measurements up to 10 GPa for the LaFeAsO _{1-x} F _{x} system.
