power-line noise trouble, either diff/NRSE/RSE cann't avoid

We encountered a trouble during our DAQ
physical connection:
A photodiode (worked as a photocell) was shielded in a copper sheath, then connected to AI0 channel of BNC-2120(Q9 coxial jack) through a 75-3 coxial cable( RG-59/U ), we use simplest way to realise an light intensity measurement using our PXI-6221 card.
When isolated Photodiode from light, which only dark-current of photodiode accounted for, we got waveform like follows:
 setting "Terminal Configuration" as "differential", we got:
 setting "Terminal Configuration" as "RSE",we got:
 setting "Terminal Configuration" as "NRSE", we got:
as we can see, we could found an power-line frequency components (50Hz ,China) in our readings, I think our photodiode is just a floating source, so either of three measurement systems is ok, Why there is an power-line noise in our test? how to avoid it? and why "NRSE" is so different from the other two? I mean it did existed an obvious time-dependent voltage drift in the reading(higher reading-out as time passed), which measurement system shall we take in our coming measurement?
I got awfully puzzled , and need your help as soon. Our DAQ Assistant configuration is listed as following picture
chassis:  PXI-1042Q
Controller: PXI-8186 @ slot0
Card: PXI-5124 at slot1
      PXi-4461 @ slot2
      PXI-6221 @slot3( we use this card as our A/D in this case)
     BNC-2120 (as BNC Connector block of 6221)
      LV PDS 7.1

Have you tried connecting the copper sheath to earth gound? Does it fully enclose the photodiode (except for the window of course)?

The copper sheath is fully enclose the photodiode as you said, but I haven't tried it to the earth ground yet. Does that work?
whether the power-line noise should goes to the monitor or not?
'Cause our cable and BNC-2120 are just  highly close to our LCD monitor ?
Somehow, why existed an obvious time-dependent voltage drift in NRSE measurement?  THis puzzled me as well.....
