What is the difference between a System Architect/Architecture and Application Architect/Architecture? Does system architecture mean physical architecture(deployment diagram)?

from my point of view a system architect mainly has to care about infrastructure and server components and their relationships and connections ( Machines + Network + OS + Serversystems ).
an application architect has to care about the application components and their relationships and their distribution (right decomposition of an application into components + using patterns + building prototypes + place components along the existing infrastructure)
actually, these both skills overlap in some areas and a cooperation between them is essentail (e.g. for sizing issues).
