For Bi2Sr2CaCu2Oy (2212), it is shown that an oxygen gradient, as opposed to a temperature gradient, can be used to produce large bulk forms of the 2212 superconductor with highly textured microstructures from an oxygen‐deficient melt held at a constant temperature. Material produced in this manner was found to have transition temperatures between 85 and 92 K, high critical current densities below 20 K, and modest critical current densities at 77 K.
