  The ~ 8-GeV, 4-MW proton beam that drives a Neutrino Factory has a nominal 50-Hz macropulse structure with 2-3 micropulses ~ 100 ns apart. The nominal geometric beam emittance is 5 micron, and the desired rms beam radius at the liquid-metal-jet target is 1.2 mm. A quadrupole-triplet focusing system to deliver this beam spot is described.
