YBa2Cu3O7 bulk samples were synthesized by the melt textured seeding process in high magnetic fields, using high field heat treatment equipment installed with an 11 T cryocooled superconducting magnet. The X-ray rocking curves of (005) and (006) indicate that the texture in grain of the YBajCujO, matrix was improved by applying a magnetic field of only a few tesla. Moreover, it is found that the distribution of Y2BaCuOx particles was changed by applying a magnetic field of > 10 T. The critical current properties are remarkably influenced by applying a magnetic field during melt growth processing.
