An effective way of increasing the efficiency of solar cells is to spectrally split sunlight into several frequencies and absorb each frequency using appropriate photovoltaic materials. In this study, we establish a method to show spectral splitting of broadband solar light via iteratively optimized diffractive optical elements. We develop an algorithm in order to calculate 2D holographic patterns that focus two different frequencies to designated positions.
