Title:The Sun is a plasma diffuser that sorts atoms by mass
Authors: O. Manuel, Sumeet A. Kamat, Michael Mozina
Comments:20 pages, 92 references, 8 figures show that the Sun is an iron rich magnetic plasma diffuser that selectively moves lightweight elements and isotopes of each element to its surface.  Solar luminosity, neutrinos, mass fractionation, and the outpouring of H ions in the solar wind arise from neutron emission and decay at the solar core.
