We measured the temperature dependence of the trapped field and the magnetic levitation force for c-axis-oriented single-grain Gd-Ba-Cu-O bulk samples 48 mm in diameter. Trapped magnetic field of the samples was 2.1-2.2 T at 77 K and increased with decreasing temperature and reached 4.1 T at 70 K, however the sample fractured during the measurements at lower temperatures due to a large electromagnetic force. The reinforcement by a metal ring was effective in improving the mechanical strength. The sample encapsulated in an Al ring could trap a very high magnetic field of 9.0 T at 50 K. In liquid O 2 the Gd-Ba-Cu-O bulk exhibited a trapped field of 0.42 T and a magnetic levitation force about a half value of that in liquid N2.
