The pressure variations of the magnetic property of amorphous La(Fe0.85Al0.15)13 alloy have been investigated by ac susceptibility measurements under high pressures up to 7.3 GPa, in the temperature range between 5 and 330 K. With increasing pressure, the Curie temperature decreased, and a new high-pressure magnetic phase came to appear in the low-temperature region below 50 K. Further increasing pressure, the ferromagnetic state disappeared and then the new high-pressure magnetic phase only remained. These pressure variations of the magnetic properties in amorphous La(Fe0.85Al0.15)13 alloy are quiet different from La(Fe0.85Al0.15)13 compound, but similar to those of Invar alloys.
