Materials in the system Bi-Ca-Sr-Cu-O were prepared by rapid solidification. Emphasis was placed on optimizing processing conditions for enhancement of the high Tc (2223) phase. A number of starting compositions and heat-treatments were investigated. The effect of dopants (such as, Pb, Sb, Ge, Sn) on the stabilization of the high Tc phase was evaluated. Small amounts of Pb and Sb were effective in significantly increasing the 2223 yield. Improvements in superconducting properties as a function of 2223 evolution are discussed with reference to SEM, TEM, XRD and SQUID results.
