The ISIS neutron spallation source uses a separate muon
target 20 m upstream of the neutron target for MuSR research.
Because ISIS is primarily a neutron source, it imposes
restrictions upon the muon target, which normally
are not present at other muon facilities like PSI or TRIUMF.
In particular it is not possible to use thicker targets
and higher energy proton drivers because of the loss of neutrons
and the increased background at neutron instruments.
In this paper we investigate possible material choices for
the ISIS muon target for increased muon yield.
