We report the growth of potassium-doped BaFe2As2 thin films, where the major charge carriers are holes, on Al2O3 (0001) and LaAlO3 (001) substrates by using an ex situ pulsed laser deposition technique. The measured superconducting transition temperatures are 40 K and 39 K for the films grown on Al2O3 and LaAlO3, respectively, and diamagnetism indicates that the films have good bulk superconducting properties below 36 K and 30 K, respectively. The x-ray diffraction patterns for both films indicated a preferred c-axis orientation, regardless of the substrate structures of LaAlO3 and Al2O3. The upper critical field at zero temperature was estimated to be about 155 T.
