We report the first observation of pressure-enhanced lattice transformation in the high-temperature superconductor Nb3Sn. The opposite pressure effects on the lattice transformation and the superconducting transition in A15 compounds can thus be understood on the basis of the Weger-Labbé-Friedel model by taking into account the pressure-induced interband charge transfer.
