Figure 1, density profile of two superfluid components that either mix (left) or do not mix (right)

In a rotating superfluid with two components that are miscible, or mixable, the matter will be distributed evenly within the doughnut-shaped container. This is the same density profile seen in a rotating, single-component superfluid. When the two components are immiscible, or not mixable, they will separate from each other and form two semicircle clumps on opposite sides.
