the measure of how effective antenna is at receiving radio waves or other power waves. Generally aperture efficiency is not related to the size of the antenna, but some antennas do have physical opening that collects the waves.

APERTURE EFFICIENCY: "Aperture efficiency is dimensionless parameter between 0 and 1.0."
