Pressure-induced structural phase transition of spin ladder compound SrCu2O3 was investigated by synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction with a diamond anvil cell (DAC). The change was characterized by a buckling of the Cu2O3 plane in the rung direction of the ladder. The structure of the high-pressure phase was found to be essentially the same as that of CaCu2O3. Application of an external pressure of 3.4 GPa therefore affected the structure in the same manner that the chemical (internal) pressure does.
