In science:

An example of donut images corresponding to first few Zernike aberrations is shown in Fig. 2.
Donut: measuring optical aberrations from a single extra-focal image
Indeed, the defocus should be proportional to the size of the donut which, in turn, is the average of its size in x and y .
Donut: measuring optical aberrations from a single extra-focal image
To recover the sign of these aberrations, however, we need to know if the donut is intra- or extra-focal.
Donut: measuring optical aberrations from a single extra-focal image
The moments are used as a first step in fitting models to a donut image.
Donut: measuring optical aberrations from a single extra-focal image
Thus, in the limit of small aberrations, the intensity distribution in the donut can be represented as the sum of Laplacians of the Zernike modes with suitable coefficients and scaling.
