WHAT DOES APERTURE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

aperture

Aperture

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. The aperture determines how collimated the admitted rays are, which is of great importance for the appearance at the image plane. If an aperture is narrow, then highly collimated rays are admitted, resulting in a sharp focus at the image plane. If an aperture is wide, then uncollimated rays are admitted, resulting in a sharp focus only for rays with a certain focal length. This means that a wide aperture results in an image that is sharp around what the lens is focusing on and blurred otherwise. The aperture also determines how many of the incoming rays are actually admitted and thus how much light reaches the image plane. In the human eye, the pupil is the aperture. An optical system typically has many openings, or structures that limit the ray bundles.

Definition of aperture in the English dictionary

The definition of aperture in the dictionary is a hole, gap, crack, slit, or other opening. Other definition of aperture is a usually circular and often variable opening in an optical instrument or device that controls the quantity of radiation entering or leaving it.
