A near‐infrared (1.5 μm) to visible light (green) electro‐optical upconverter with amplified power gain has been designed and demonstrated. The device was fabricated by direct tandem integration of an organic light emitting diode with an inorganic InGaAs/InP heterojunction phototransistor. An overall external upconversion power efficiency of 155% was measured at room temperature, demonstrating the utility of hybrid organic/inorganic semiconductor systems.
