How should I avoid repeating the part the potential with lower?

  • Since you identified the specific issue, this possibly falls under ELU's Usage portion. In any case, here are 2 suggestions: "Here the plus and minus signs refer to the potentials with lower right and left wells, respectively." or "Here the plus (respectively, minus) sign refers to the potential with lower right (left) well."

Here the plus and minus signs refer to the potential with lower right well and to the one with lower left well, respectively.
