Some removed entries[edit]

"In auditing, cut-off means correct timliness. Auditors have to ensure whether the transactions are recorded in the correct accounting period. For instance, a sale transaction of the year ended 2007 should be recored in the year ended 2007 instead of the year ended 2006." --- I have removed this because it has absolutely nothing to do with physics and should not occur on this page. Also the error and grammar makes me question if the person that added this material knows much of the physics of cutoff.

I removed the sentence "UV cutoff is the wavelength at which the solvent absorbance in a 1 cm path length cell is equal to 1 AU (absorbance unit) using water in the reference cell," this not being relevant in quantum field theory. David Da Vit 16:11, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

UV Cuttoff[edit]

UV Cuttoff is a term used in development of HPLC methods for different Pharmaceuticals. For choosing the mobile phases and diluent in HPLC UV cuttoff is very useful. Mahesh Kote. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.249.50.35 (talk) 09:24, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

CutoffCutoff (physics) — Cutoff is a very ambiguous term, and it would be more appropriate to have the term for the disambiguation page, which is currently located at Cutoff (disambiguation). Mikael Häggström (talk) 10:46, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

  • Partly support: Nominator is correct, but I think "threshold" is a more scientific term than cutoff anyway, which is very colloquial. So I would more strongly support CutoffThreshold (science) and Cutoff (disambiguation)Cutoff. (I chose the disambiguator "science" instead of "physics" because it is also used in chemistry, engineering, etc. –CWenger (talk) 23:03, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
