A design of a single minimum-B tandem mirror is proposed. This tandem mirror has the plug and thermal barrier potentials at both end mirror cells created by electron cyclotron resonance heating only. The plasma radial transport is suppressed by a magnetic well in the central mirror cell of the tandem mirror, while the transport is enhanced by the azimuthally nonuniform electrostatic potential in the end cells.
