Partial melting of filamentary (Nd0.33Eu0.08Gd 0.58)Ba2Cu3Oy superconductors in flowing 0.1% O2+Ar (sample A) and 1% O2+Ar (sample B) under various heating conditions was examined to obtain high transport J c. The Tc values for sample A and sample B were 92.3 and 84.6 K, and maximum Jc values at 77 K and self-fields were 19,000 and 350 A/cm2, respectively. Sample A had well-aligned texture along the filament diameter as well as filament length. The field dependence of J c for sample A was measured at 77 K and magnetic fields up to 10 T by changing the angle along the filament diameter. An angular dependence of the Jc along the filament diameter was detected. By optimizing the angle, the sample showed Jc value of 420 A/cm2 at 77 K and 8 T.
