Pressure effects on the charge-ordering (CO) transition have been investigated for an oxygen-deficient double-perovskite cobalt oxide, BaYCo 2O5.0, through resistivity measurements using a piston-cylinder-type clamp cell. The charge-ordering temperature TCO rises (+ 19 K/GPa) as pressure increases, making a sharp contrast with the pressure suppression of TCO seen for the isostructural BaSmFe 2O5.0. We have further determined the atomic coordinates under elevated pressures, and ascribed this unexpected behavior of BaYCo 2O5.0 to the pressure enhancement of the orthorhombic distortion s (≡a - b).
