Production of a rod-connected diamond (RCD) photonic crystal structure in a semiconductor material is proposed. Periodic shifting of only one building block can create a complicated three-dimensional network, with a RCD structure exhibiting a full bandgap as wide as 0.20 on a gap/midgap (Δω/ωM) basis. A point defect cavity in the structure sustains single-mode resonance throughout the operative range because of its low symmetry. The resonant mode’s highest quality factor (Q-factor) was calculated as 1.5×104 for a crystal of 11.5ax×4.25ay×12az for ai (i=x,y,z) representing three axes’ period lengths.
