We investigate optical resonant cavities using metallic mirror in order to increase the absorption in low-temperature-grown GaAs (LT-GaAs) based photoconductors operating at telecom wavelength. Two different semi-transparent front mirrors are compared: the first one is a thin gold layer whereas the second one consists of a gold periodic array. We show that the generated photocurrent is 3 times higher...
