We present a new design of InGaAs metal-semiconductor-metal (InGaAs-MSM) photodetectors placed in optical resonant cavities in order to reduce inter-electrode spacing while keeping a high photoresponse. Its static and dynamic photoresponse properties have been measured by means of a photomixing experiment up to 67 GHz, showing the potential of this device for GHz and THz applications.
