dc.description.abstractRare earth–barium–copper oxide bulk superconductors fabricated in large or complicated geometries are required for a variety of engineering applications. Initiating crystal growth from multiple seeds reduces the time taken to melt-process individual samples and can reduce the problem of poor crystal texture away from the seed. Grain boundaries between regions of independent crystal growth can reduce significantly the flow of current due to crystallographic misalignment and the agglomeration of impurity phases. Enhanced supercurrent flow at such boundaries has been achieved by minimising the depth of the boundary between $\small \textit{A}$ growth sectors generated during the melt growth process by reducing second phase agglomerations and by a new technique for initiating crystal growth that minimises the misalignment between different growth regions. The trapped magnetic fields measured for the resulting samples exhibit a single trapped field peak indicating they are equivalent to conventional single grains.
