First Measurements of Thermodiffusion

The first measurements of thermodiffusion on the ferrofluids dispersed in the new ionic liquids for thermoelectric applications have been recorded. The determined Soret coefficients ST, which quantify the gradient of concentration induced by a gradient of temperature, are positive. The diffusion coefficient of the magnetic nanoparticles scales with the viscosity of the ionic liquids.
