Pulsed-field magnetization is a useful magnetization technique for high-temperature superconductivity bulk crystals for practical applications. However, the trapped magnetic flux is reduced due to the temperature increase from the mobile flux, and the distribution of the flux density is considerably distorted in the a-b crystallographic axes plane. We present two proposals to improve the trapped magnetic flux and its distribution upon pulsed-field magnetization. Firstly, split-type vortex pulsed copper coils with diameters smaller than that of the bulk disk. Secondly, two HTS bulks are stacked layered with misalignment of their crystal a-b axes to reduce the flux motion in the four-fold growth sectors, since the critical current density Jc in the growth sectors is lower. Combining these techniques, the decayed trapped field distribution was recovered and the total flux was increased up to 30% in comparison with a conventional pulsed-field magnetization.
