The opening in an optical system (scanner) that establishes the field of view
Small opening, for example the opening in the test of a foram.Found on http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/glossary/glossary_4.html
The opening of a lens that controls the amount of light reaching the surface of the pickup device. The size of the aperture is controlled by the iris adjustment. By increasing the F-stop number (F/1.4, F/1.8, F/2.8, etc.) less light is permitted to pass to the pickup device.

Working much like the pupil of the eye, the movement of the lens' internal aperture blades closes or opens the aperture to adjust the amount of light passing through the lens. The value inscribed on the aperture ring of the lens (F1.4, F2, F2.8, etc.) represents the size of the aperture and is called the 'aperture value' or 'f-stop.' As this value ...Found on http://www.encyclo.co.uk/local/20171
The opening in a lens through which light passes to expose the film. Aperture size is usually calibrated in f-numbers, the larger the number, the smaller the lens opening, therefore the slower the shutter must be! (see f-stop)

A hole. The circular hole in the centre of a lens through which light passes to reach the film. The size of the hole can be varied using the aperture control which in turn alters a diaphragm within the body of the lens. Measured in f-stops. Altering by one F-stop either halves or doubles the amount of light reaching the film.

(Digital cameras and photo printers) Mechanism behind the lens that controls the amount of light entering the camera. The aperture not only influences picture brightness but also regulates depth of focus. Most cameras are equipped with an iris aperture that can be freely adjusted or set according to pre-selected values.Found on http://www.encyclo.co.uk/local/20472
In a real camera, the size of the opening that light passes through (usually given in terms of its f-stop) in order to reach the film. The larger the f-stop, the smaller the opening. 3D software packages sometimes mimic the effects of different aperture settings on a recorded image during the rendering process.

A measure of the physical space available for beam to occupy in a device. Aperture limitations, however, are not always due to the physical size of the vacuum chamber; for instance, a magnetic field anomaly may deflect the beam so that the full available aperture cannot be used.

- The variable diameter opening in a camera lens that allows control of the intensity of light reaching the CCD. A camera's aperture and shutter speed determine a photo's exposure. Aperture diameters are expressed in f-numbers, e.g., f/11. As the f-number increases, the lens opening decreases.
