aperture
  دهانه   
dahâné (#)

Fr.: ouverture   

The diameter of the main mirror in a reflecting telescope, the objective lens in a refracting telescope, the dish of a radio telescope, or the entry of an instrument such as spectrograph, photometer.

From L. apertura, from apertus, p.p. of aperire "to open, uncover," from PIE *ap-wer-yo- from *ap- "off, away" + base *wer- "to cover".

Ddahâné "an opening," from dahân "mouth," from Mid.Pers./Mod.Pers. zafar, Av. zafar, zafan "mouth," compare with Skt. jambha- "set of teeth, mouth, jaws," Ger. Kiefer "mouth".

aperture efficiency
  کار‌آیی ِ دهانه   
kârâyi-ye dahâné

Fr.: efficacité d'ouverture   

The ratio of the → effective aperture of a radio telescope to the true aperture.

aperture; → efficiency.

aperture photometry
  شیدسنجی ِ دهانه‌ای   
šidsanji-ye dahânéi

Fr.: photométrie d'ouverture   

Photometry using a diaphragm to isolate a small sky area, either directly with a focal-plane diaphragm, or with an image processing system.

aperture; → photometry.

aperture ratio
  وابر ِ دهانه   
vâbar-e dahâné

Fr.: rapport d'ouverture   

The ratio of the effective diameter of a lens or mirror to its focal length.

aperture; → ratio.

aperture stop
  دریچه‌ی ِ دهانه   
darice-ye dahâné

Fr.: diaphragme d'ouverture   

The diaphragm that limits the diameter of the axial light bundle allowed to pass through a lens.

aperture; → stop.

aperture synthesis
  هندایش ِ دهانه   
handâyeš-e dahâné

Fr.: synthèse d'ouverture   

The method of combining the signals received by several smaller telescopes distributed over a very large area or baseline to provide the high angular resolution of a much large telescope.

aperture; → synthesis.

apex
  چکاد   
cakâd (#)

Fr.: apex   

1) General: The highest point or level.
2) Mathematics: The highest point of a geometric figure or solid relative to some line or plane.
3) Astro.: Solar apex. The point on the celestial sphere toward which the Sun and the solar system are moving relative to the stars in our vicinity.

L. apex "summit, peak, tip," probably related to apere "to fasten, fix," hence "the tip of anything".

Cakâd "summit of a mountain; top, crown of the head, top of the forehead," from Mid.Pers. cakât "summit," cf. Skt. kakud-, kakuda- "peak, summit," L. cacumen "top, point," cumulus "heap."

aphelion
  اپاهور   
apâhur

Fr.: aphélie   

The point in the orbit of a planet, or other object in the solar system, which is furthest from the Sun.

Aphelion, from L. aphelium, from Gk. → apo- + helios "sun," cognate with L. sol, Skt. surya, Av. hvar-, Mod.Pers. xor, hur, O.H.G. sunna, Ger. Sonne, E. sun; PIE *sawel- "sun".

Apâhur, from Pers. prefix apâ, → apo-, + hur "sun."

aphelion distance
  اپست ِ اپاهوری   
apest-e apâhuri

Fr.: distance à l'aphélie   

The distance between the → Sun and an → object in orbit around it when they are at their farthest approach.

perihelion; → distance.

aplanatic lens
  عدسی ِ نابیراه   
adasi-ye nâbirah

Fr.: lentille aplanétique   

A lens designed so as to minimize both its → spherical aberration and → coma.

aplanatism; → lens.

aplanatic system
  راژمان ِ نابیراه   
râžmân-e nâbirah

Fr.: système aplanétique   

An → optical system that is able to produce an image essentially free from → spherical aberration and → coma. See also the → Abbe sine condition.

aplanatism; → system.

aplanatism
  نابیراهی   
nâbirahi

Fr.: aplanétisme   

Freedom from spherical aberration and coma.

Aplanatism, from aplanatic, from a- "negation prefix" + Gk. plane "wandering," from planasthai "to wander" + -tic adjective-forming suffix.

Nâbirahi, from nâ- "negation prefix" + birah "a devious path; a wanderer, who deviates, errs," + -i noun affix.

apo-
  اپا-   
apâ-

Fr.: apo-   

Prefix meaning "away from, off; out of; without," ap- before a vowel or h.

From Gk. apo "away from, from;" cf. Av. apâ "away from, from."

Persian apâ- from Av. and O.Pers. apâ "away from, from". Compare with Skt. apa "away, off," L. ab- "from, away," Hittite appa, Gothic af-, Ger. ab-, E. of, off; PIE *apo- "off, away."

apoapsis
  اپاهباک   
apâhabâk

Fr.: apoapse   

The point in an orbit where the moving body lies furthest from the celestial body around which it turns.

Apoapsis, from → apo- + → apsis.

Apâhabâk, from apâ-, → apo-, + habâk, → apsis.

apocenter
  اپامرکز   
apâmarkaz

Fr.: apocentre   

The point on an elliptic orbit at the greatest distance from the principal focus or center of attraction.

Apocenter, from → apo- + → center.

Apâmarkaz, apâkayân, from apâ-, → apo-, + markaz or kayân, → center.
