The computer simulations of the angular distributions of low-Z relativistic isotopes channeled in a half-wavelength-crystal (HWC) revealed that at equal beam energy, crystal thickness and its alignment, the HWC channeling is sensitive to a mass number A of the low-Z isotope. That means, besides well-known applications of relativistic channeling for beam deflection and splitting, probably the new one is possible – light isotopes mass filter.
