Colored Module glasses with high angle tolerance can be achieved by using the photonic effect discovered on high transmission is demonstrated. In a BIPV module, a homogeneous appearance with saturated color will be achieved by using a black back sheet and black interconnect wire or back junction cells. Fig. 2: Demonstration of the color effect for a mini module. The glass panes are applied with a water film. For large area demonstration, the functional layer was applied to glass panes of the format 109 x 112 cm2 (Fig. 3). These glass panes will be used for PV module lamination and installation in a demonstration façade at Fraunhofer ISE (installation planned in autumn 2016). Fig. 3: Large area demonstrator on an area of more than 1 m2. In the bright green area the strong color is visible since a black screen was positioned behind the glass. In the surrounding areas the high transparency can be seen. In the center and at the bottom reflections of the flashlight are visible.
