Raman scattering is studied for a pressure-induced superconductor Cs3C60 in a pressure region from 1 bar to 62 kbar. The center frequency ω0 for Hg(1) and Hg(2) Raman peaks increase by applying pressure, but the increase shows a saturation in the high-pressure region. On the other hand, the ω0 for Ag(1) and Ag(2) modes increase monotonically in all pressure regions. The electron-phonon coupling constant for Cs3C60 shows a rapid decrease up to 30 kbar and an increase above 30 kbar. This result may be associated with a transformation from a multiphase (body-centered orthorhombic and A 15 phases) to a single phase around 20 kbar. X-ray powder diffraction pattern at 11 K under a pressure of 40 kbar shows that a superconducting phase for Cs3C60 is body-centered orthorhombic.
