Multiphoton pumped stimulated emission requires simultaneous absorption of photons for the creation of population inversion to sustain optical amplification. Recently, stimulated emission by simultaneous absorption of up to five photons has been realized. To achieve more diverse nonlinear optical applications, it is desired to have more photons involved in the upconversion process. Here, we demonstrate unambiguously frequency upconverted amplified spontaneous emission and lasing via simultaneous six-photon absorption from inorganic perovskite. Our finding allows the utilization of inorganic perovskite as the novel alternative for higher-order multiphoton fluorescent applications.
