    ISIS is the world’s most successful pulsed spallation
    neutron source that provides beams of neutrons and muons
    that enable scientists to study the properties of the matter at
    the atomic level. Restrictions are imposed on the muon target
    regarding thickness as this will affect the proton transmission
    to the second neutron target. However, it could
    be possible to improve the muon production by optimizing
    the target geometry. Currently the muon target is a 7 mm
    thick graphite plate oriented at 45 degrees with respect to
    the proton beam. A set of slices placed at variable distance
    is proposed instead of the 7 mm thick graphite target. The
    performance of the set of slices is examined in this paper
