We report the impact of hydrostatic pressure on the superconductivity and normal-state resistivity of FeTe0.5Se0.5 superconductor. At the ambient pressure, the FeTe0.5Se0.5 compound shows the superconducting transition temperature at above 13 K and at 11.5 K. We measure pressure-dependent resistivity from 250 to 5 K, which shows that the normal-state resistivity increases initially for the applied pressures of up to 0.55 GPa, and then the same is decreased monotonically with increasing pressure of up to 1.97 GPa. On the other hand, the superconducting transition temperatures ( and increase monotonically with increasing pressure. Namely the increases from 13 to 25 K and from 11.5 to 20 K for the pressure range of 0-1.97 GPa. Our results suggest that superconductivity in this class of Fe-based compounds is very sensitive to pressure as the estimated pressure coefficient d T (c)(onset)/dP is similar to 5.8 K/GPa. It may be suggested that the FeTe0.5Se0.5 superconductor is a strong electron-correlated system. The enhancement of T (c) with applying pressure is mainly attributed to an increase of charge carriers at the Fermi surface.
