If solar radiation can split into beams diffracted in different directions depending on the wavelength of the light, solar energy may be harvested efficiently using different photovoltaic solar cells optimised for different spectral regimes. Simulations based on the solution of the Maxwell equations lead to an optimal blazed-grating spectrum splitter.
