Paper Abstract

This paper presents our research and development efforts in realizing and perfecting organic/inorganic photon upconversion devices for wavelengths from near infrared (1.5 μm) region to visible light (green). The basic idea is to integrate an InGaAs/InP photodetector with an organic light emitting diode (OLED), connected in series. The detected photocurrent drives the OLED to emit visible light, thereby achieving the upconversion. A few approaches of integration methods and device designs have been tested.
