HighTc phase (Tc ∼ 110 K) has been obtained in Bi-Sr-Ca-Cu-O system by partially substituting Bi by Pb. Magnetic hysteresis has been measured as a function of temperature. Critical current densities have been measured at 77 K both by transport and a.c. magnetization method in bulk samples for various concentrations of Pb. The results show that substitution of 15 at % Pb for Bi is most preferable for higher critical current density.
