The unconventional superconductor Sr2RuO4 has been extensively studied under in-plane uniaxial pressure. a-axis pressure deforms one of the Fermi surfaces elliptically, so that at a compressive strain of εxx = −0.44 %, one of the Fermi surfaces undergoes a Lifshitz transition at a single point in k-space, dramatically altering the low-temperature electronic properties. Here, we investigate the consequences of pressure along the c-axis. c-axis pressure causes charge transfer from the dxz and dyz to the dxy-orbital, resulting in an expansion of the main Fermi surface and finally in Lifshitz transitions at the X and Y points simultaneously. DFT calculations suggest that this occurs at εzz ≈ −2.5 %. We present data for strains up to −2 %, finding that, surprisingly, Tc decreases even as the density of states increases.
