Cs K-edge XAFS of Cs3C60 which is a pressure-induced superconductor were measured at 21 and 34 kbar by using a diamond anvil cell (DAC) in order to obtain the structural information under high pressure, and to clarify the origin of the pressure-induced superconductivity. The distances and the mean square displacements between the Cs and C atoms are consistent with those determined by X-ray powder diffraction. Consequently, the high-pressure XAFS can give the reliable structural-information on a fullerene superconductor under high pressure. We also show the procedure of the analysis of high-pressure XAFS with DAC in detail.
