Abstract
A pion production source using a thin target and a recirculating storage ri ng is considered. The potential advantages of the scheme are: (i) the thin target could allow a better collection efficiency; (ii) the proton beam dum p is avoided; (iii) light targets could be used. The disadvantages are: (i) the high beam current stored in the recirculator, (ii) constraints on timi ng. This scheme could be used for the neutrino factory but not for muon col liders.
