How does [OIF] related to a [HPF] or [LPF]? Numerically? Do you use oil immersion always with the 100x magnification? And if so, is it not just the same as the HPF? Do you have references?

I suggest to reject this one.

While HPF and LPF are currently found in literature, as is the term "oil immersion", I was not able to find a reference to the shortcut "OIF". As this is not a unit linked to the SI system, it merely represents a specific numerical value (like HPF and LPF). So adding a code for it does not add much value. Users can use the shortcut "OIF", but not in the sense of a unit of measure as coded in UCUM.

Decision from 17 February 2021 Board meeting:

Reject, not a common acronym and not numerically related to LPF or HPF, only clears up resolution.

No response to be sent due to age of request.
