The effect of hydrostatic pressure up to 15 kbar on the superconducting transition temperature Tcis reported for five compounds in the quaternary system RENi2B2C (RE=Y, Lu, Tm, Er, Ho). The compounds with RE=Y, Lu, Tm, Er display a modest linear variation of Tcwith pressure. The value of dTc/dp is ranging from -1.78×10-5K/bar up to +1.88×10-5K/bar. In contrast, for HoNi2B2C some kind of interplay between long-range magnetic order and superconductivity occurs, which is strongly modified under applied pressure. © 1994.
