EN[ˈæp.ə.tʃə(r)] [ˈæp.ə.tjʊə(r)] [ˈæp.ɚ.tʃɚ]
WAperture
  • In optics, an aperture is a hole or an opening through which light travels. More specifically, the aperture of an optical system is the opening that determines the cone angle of a bundle of rays that come to a focus in the image plane.
  • An optical system typically has many openings, or structures that limit the ray bundles (ray bundles are also known as pencils of light).
  • In some contexts, especially in photography and astronomy, aperture refers to the diameter of the aperture stop rather than the physical stop or the opening itself.
