Abstract
We demonstrate an efficient terahertz (THz) detector based on an optical hybrid cavity, which consists of an optically thin photoconductive layer between a distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) and an array of electrically isolated nanoantennas. Using a combination of numerical simulations and optical experiments, we find a hybrid cavity design which absorbs <75% of incident light with a 50 nm photoconductive layer. By integrating this optical hybrid cavity design into a THz detector, we see enhanced detection sensitivity at the operation wavelength (~815 nm) over designs which do not include the nanoantenna array.
