We discuss the Stark deflectometry of micro-modulated molecular beams for the enrichment of biomolecular isomers as well as single-wall carbon nanotubes, and we demonstrate the working principle of this idea with fullerenes. The sorting is based on the species-dependent susceptibility-to-mass ratio χ/m. The device is compatible with a high molecular throughput, and the spatial micro-modulation of the beam permits one to obtain a fine spatial resolution and a high sorting sensitivity.
