Abstract

In Ref. [1], it was demonstrated that the significant systematic errors of a type of large dynamic range aberrometer are strongly related to the power error (defocus) in the input wavefront. In this paper, a generalized theoretical analysis based on vector aberration theory is presented, and local shift errors of the SH spot pattern as a function of the lenslet position and the local wavefront tilt over the corresponding lenslet are derived. Three special cases, a spherical wavefront, a crossed cylindrical wavefront, and a cylindrical wavefront, are analyzed and the possibly affected Zernike terms in the wavefront reconstruction are investigated. The simulation and experimental results are illustrated to verify the theoretical predictions.
