Soret effect
 
Hello all! Can anyone explain why the Soret effect or thermal diffusion is more prevalent at low pressure conditions rather than atmospheric pressure when modeling dilute mixtures in CVD problems.

Thanks, Chuck

That is because the thermal diffusion coefficient is larger at lower pressure.
