We benchmark five state-of-the-art computational methods by computing quality factors and resonance wavelengths in photonic crystal membrane L5 and L9 line defect cavities. The convergence of the methods with respect to resolution, degrees of freedom and number of modes is investigated. Convergence is not obtained for some of the methods, indicating that some are more suitable than others for analyzing line defect cavities.
