We report the fabrication and characteristics of planar microcavities in a log-pile photonic crystal structure formed using light-induced photopolymerization of resin. A planar defect was introduced into the middle of the log-pile structure as a single layer with every second rod missing. The existence of confined cavity states was confirmed experimentally and by numeric simulations. The cavity resonance found at the midgap wavelength λM∼4.0 μm had a quality factor of about 130.
