InGaN metal-semiconductor-metal photodetectors (MSM-PDs) with recessed electrodes were fabricated. Compared with the conventional planar MSM-PD, it was found that measured photocurrent and photocurrent-to-dark-current contrast ratio were both much larger for the MSM-PD with the recessed electrodes. With a 5-V applied bias and an incident light wavelength of 470 nm, it was found that measured responsivities were 0.144 and 0.038 A/W for the MSM-PDs with and without the recessed electrodes, respectively.
