I think that the second plot is just showing PRISM and converting it to its radial components. This is due to the fact that the sign of the spot displacement on the LHS is the opposite of the sign of the spot displacement on the RHS. For spherical or cylindrical power, the sign of the spot displacement should be the same on both the RHS and the LHS.
I've attached a Mathematica PDF that illustrates this.
Results of initial measurement of temperature sensitivity of Hartmann sensor
"Cold" images were taken at the following temperature:
| before | 32.3 | 45.3 | 37.0 |
| after | 32.4 | 45.6 | 37.3 |
"Hot" Images were taken at the following temperature:
| before | 36.5 | 48.8 | 40.4 |
| after | 36.4 | 48.8 | 40.4 |
"before" are the temperatures just before taking 5000 images, and "after" are
the temperatures just after taking the images. First column is the temperature
measured using the IR temp sensor pointed at the heat sink, the second column the
camera temperature, and the third column the sensor board temperature.
Temperature change produced by placing a "hat" over the top of the HP assembly and the top of the heatsinks.
Averaged images "cool" and "hot" were created using 200 frames (each).
Aberration parameter values are as follows:
Between cool and hot images (cool spots - hot spots)
Between cool images only
Between hot images only
Attached are two contour plots of the radial spot displacements, one between
cool and hot images, and the other between cool images only. The color
bars roughly indicate the values of maximum and minimum spot
1. anisotropy of the thermal expansion of the invar foil HP caused by the rolling
2. non-uniform clamping of the HP by the clamp plate
3. vertical thermal gradient produced by the temperature raising method
4. buckling of the HP due to slight damage (dent)
