We have observed a significant photoconductivity in a diode structure consisting of Ga1-xMnxAs (x = 0.04, p-type) and n-ZnSe separated by a recrystallized GaAs template. Under forward bias, the photoconductivity increases almost exponentially on lowering the temperature, shows a peak near 110 K, and then decreases by more than two orders of magnitude as Ga1-xMnxAs becomes ferromagnetic (Tc = 80 K). Such magnetization dependence is confirmed by applying an external magnetic field.
