When waves meet a gap in a barrier, they carry on through the gap. However, the waves spread out to some extent into the area beyond the gap. This is Diffraction.

Diffraction reduces the quality of images seen in microscopes and telescopes. It can cause rings or spikes around the image of the object being viewed.
