Single-crystalline films of La2-xSrxCuO4 have been grown epitaxially on SrTiO3, NdGaO3, and LaSrAlO4 substrates by laser ablation. We show that record values of the superconducting transition temperature may be achieved by high-pressure annealing in oxygen. The films exhibit values of Tco above 38 K, as well as a linear variation of the resistivity with T and excellent crystal quality.
