We report on the synthesis and characterization of a sintered bulk MgB2 material produced at an optimized sintering temperature with a varying content of carbon-encapsulated amorphous boron. A series of MgB2 bulks was prepared with 0%, 1.5%, 2.8%, 7.3%, 12% and 16.5% of carbon-encapsulated boron. In the samples with 12% of carbon-encapsulated boron, Mg and MgB2C2 formation was observed. Tc was around 38.4 K for the pure MgB2 and decreased with increasing carbon content up to 25 K for 16.5 % of carbon-encapsulated boron. The highest Jc values of 470 kA/cm2 and 310 kA/cm2, in the self-field and 1 T, respectively, were achieved at 20 K, in the MgB2 sample with 1.5% of carbon-encapsulated boron. It proved that the optimized sintering conditions together with the appropriate amount of the carbon-coated boron were able to bring critical current performance of bulk MgB2 material up to the level necessary for real technical applications.
