The ISIS Pulsed Muon Facility
The pulsed muon facility at the ISIS spallation neutron source of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory is described. Work currently in-hand to increase the performance of the proton synchrotron from its present 100 microamperes at 750 MeV to its design goal of 200 microamperes at 800 MeV are described in conjunction with plans to expand the muon facility itself. Within a period of three years it will be possible to offer five simultaneous experimental ports with single muon pulses at 50Hz from a surface/cloud facility on the south side of the extracted proton beam, and a superconducting decay channel on the opposite side. Such an overall facility will offer unique opportunities for pulsed muon science to the end of the decade and beyond.
