High-pressure electrical resistance measurements were performed for iron-based ladder material Ba1-xCsxFe2Se3 (x = 0.25 and 0.65) using a diamond anvil cell (DAC). Recent high-pressure study revealed that iron-based ladder material BaFe2S3 exhibits an insulator-metal transition and superconductivity, and this discovery would provide important insight for understanding the mechanism of iron-based superconductors. Therefore, it is intriguing to investigate the high-pressure properties for the iron-based ladder material Ba1-xCsxFe2Se3 system. The parent compounds BaFe2Se3 and CsFe2Se3 show insulating and magnetic ordering features. For Ba1-xCsxFe2Se3 system, no magnetic ordering is observed for x = 0.25 and minimum charge gap was estimated for x = 0.65. The insulator-metal transitions are observed in both materials.
