Description: Aspects of muon beams pertinent to the establishment of an effective nucleon structure facility are discussed and a preliminary design for such a beam at NAL is advanced. The optical properties, duty factor and proton beam source are already able to be sharply specified, but the pion and muon transports need more work to be optimal. It is already clear, however, that efficiency gains of at least 20 can be made and probably- factors of 50 or even 100 are not impossible. Beam/halo ratios can probably be raised to 14: 1 with proper spoilers. Most important of all, the effective beam time can be raised an order of magnitude over present prospects by establishing a separate source of protons for a muon beam by means of a split or pulsed switch in the present neutrino beam time.
