In this paper, we study the notion of a separability idempotent in the $C^*$-algebra framework. This is analogous to the notion in the purely algebraic setting, typically considered in the case of (finite-dimensional) algebras with identity, then later also considered in the multiplier algebra framework by the second-named author. The current work was motivated by the appearance of such objects in the authors' ongoing work on locally compact quantum groupoids.

Keywords: Separability idempotent, weak multiplier Hopf algebra, locally compact quantum groupoid
