angular aperture

The angle between the most divergent rays that can pass through the lens to form an image. In a birefringent crystal light modulator or Pockels cell, the maximum angle in the incident light rays that gives a nominal 100:1 contrast ratio with applied half-wave voltage is a function of the crystal thickness.
