    The pulsed muon channel of the ISIS facility at RAL has
    been successfully commissioned and operated for many
    years as a tool for ìSR studies in condensed matter research.
    At the present time, the graphite target, of dimensions
    50*50*7 mm oriented at 45 degrees to a proton beam
    of 800 MeV energy, gives 16000 surface muons per double
    proton pulse passing through the entrance aperture of
    the aluminium window which separates the muon beamlines
    from the main proton beam. Potential improvements
    to the target geometry, and optimisation of the design and
    estimated performance of the muon target are presented in
    this paper
