Several solar energy conversion processes can be utilized simultaneously using a common solar collector if the solar radiation is appropriately spectrally split. A concentrating and splitting system based on a Cassegrainian design may be used for photovoltaic energy conversion and simultaneously for an additional energy conversion process such as for laser pumping that requires concentration. The spectral splitting may be achieved by a dichroic mirror for the secondary mirror of the Cassegrain. This approach was realized to study solar cells at different concentration, solar spectrum and temperatures.
