Pulsed laser deposition on (100) SrTiO3 substrates was used to grow epitaxial Ba2RuO4 films with K2NiF4 structure. Results of X-ray diffraction and cross-sectional electron microscopy studies showed that the films are c-axis oriented, single-domain and contain few stacking faults and intergrowths. Metallic conductivity to low temperatures were indicated by electrical measurements but no evidence of superconductivity.
