precision aperture

An accurately produced hole of any size and shape that is used as a masking device in an optical system. Pinhole apertures of accurate diameters often are produced by laser beam penetration or by driving a needle through thin metal. These apertures may be physical holes in solid material or holes formed by opaque material deposited on a transparent substrate.
