A possible high-T c c superconductivity in a La-Sr-Nb-O film is reported. Onset of the resistive transition is at a temperature (T co ) of 315 K, with a zero-resistance state at a temperature (T ce ) of 255 K. Diamagnetization of about 5% that of the pure Nb superconductor and a noticeable current dependence ofT co andT ce are observed. The yield probability of this film is ∼50%. The characteristics were observed even 17 days after preparation. However, a thermal cycle (cooling and warming) of more than ten cycles gradually deteriorates the characteristics.
