Abstract: The project FULLSPECTRUM - an Integrated Project (IP) in the terminology of the European Commission - pursues a better exploitation of the FULL solar SPECTRUM by 1) further developing concepts already scientifically proven but not yet developed, and 2) by trying to prove new ones in the search for a breakthrough in PV technology. More specific objectives are the development of: a) III-V multijunction cells (MJC), b) Solar Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) converters, c) Intermediate band (IB) materials and cells (IBC), d) Molecular-based concepts (MBC) for full PV utilisation of the solar spectrum and e) Manufacturing Technologies (MFG) for novel concepts including assembling. MJC technology towards 40% efficiency will be developed.
