1. An ion manipulation device comprising:
a. a first surface and a second surface;
b. inner arrays of electrodes coupled to each of the first and second surface, the inner arrays of electrodes configured to receive RF voltage generating a pseudopotential that inhibits charged particles from approaching either of the first and second surface;
c. outer arrays of electrodes coupled to each of the first and second surface, the outer arrays of electrodes configured to receive a first DC voltage generating a first DC potential,
wherein the generated pseudopotential and the first DC potential manipulate movement of ions in between the surfaces.
