Muon beams are customarily obtained via K/π decays produced in proton interaction on target. In this paper we investigate the possibility to produce low emittance muon beams from electron–positron collisions at centre-of-mass energy just above the μ+μ- production threshold with maximal beam energy asymmetry, corresponding to a positron beam of about 45 GeV interacting on electrons on target. We present the main features of this scheme with an outline of the possible applications for Higgs factory and Multi-TeV collider. Performances on both amorphous and crystal target are presented, and the general scheme for the muon production will be given.
