In cuprates, T<sub>C</sub> depends strongly on the out-of-plane Cu-apical oxygen distance and the in-plane Cu-O distance, but there has been little attention paid to tuning them independently. Here, in simply grown, self-assembled, vertically aligned nanocomposite thin films of La<sub>2</sub>CuO<sub>4+δ</sub> + LaCuO<sub>3</sub>, by strongly increasing out-of-plane distances without reducing in-plane distances (three-dimensional strain engineering), we achieve superconductivity up to 50 K in the vertical interface regions, spaced ~50 nm apart. No additional process to supply excess oxygen, e.g., by ozone or high-pressure oxygen annealing, was required, as is normally the case for plain La<sub>2</sub>CuO<sub>4+δ</sub> films. Our proof-of-concept work represents an entirely new approach to increasing TC in cuprates or other superconductors. Zhang, Kelvin H. L. terms-of-use Feighan, John
