Title: The double well mass filter

Various mass filter concepts based on rotating plasmas have been suggested with the specific purpose of nuclear waste remediation. We report on a new rotating mass filter combining radial separation with axial extraction. The radial separation of the masses is the result of a “double-well” in effective radial potential in rotating plasma with a sheared rotation profile.
