This paper presents a spectral beam splitting arrangement providing the basis for a four-junction photovoltaic receiver with virtually ideal band gap combination. A light trapping assembly in form of a 45° parallelepiped applying two spectrally selective beam splitters and three solar cells realizes an approach to reach very high solar-electrical conversion efficiency. The spectral beam splitters developed and used in this arrangement show nearly ideal broadband characteristics to split the solar spectrum into three parts. The solar cell selection includes III-V semiconductors and silicon. They were all fabricated at Fraunhofer ISE and assembled in the receiver setup. The experimental setup demonstrated an outdoor efficiency of more than 34 %.
