A slab two-dimensional photonic crystal in diamond is being considered for quantum information processing. In view of the low refractive index of diamond, the question whether a high Q cavity is achievable has to be addressed. Here, various geometrical designs of single point defects and double heterostructures for the formation of high Q nanocavities in diamond are modeled. The highest value of vertical quality factor was achieved in double heterostructures. This result seems to be significant for further consideration of photonic crystals in diamond for quantum electrodynamics applications.
