Efficient light detection in the near-infrared (NIR) wavelength region is central to emerging applications such as medical imaging and machine vision. An organic upconverter (OUC) consists of a NIR sensitive organic photodetector (OPD) and an organic visible light emitting diode (OLED), connected in series. The device converts NIR light directly to visible light, allowing pixelles imaging of a NIR scene in the visible. Here, we present an OUC composed of a NIR selective squaraine-dye based OPD and a fluorescent OLED...
