We present numerical results of the mutual coupling between photonic crystal cavities and semiconductor quantum dots. Normal mode splitting between a single cavity mode and a single quantum dot is shown under weak excitation, while under strong excitation Q‐factor dependent side bands appear, according to the AC‐Stark effect. Coupled photonic crystals, aligned parallel but displaced under a 30°‐angle for efficient coupling, show line splittings of all eigenmodes, if a single eigenmode is resonantly coupled to a single quantum dot. The mutual coupling of N resonant quantum dots to a single cavity mode results in a scaling of the splitting, known from quantum optics, but corrected by the field amplitude fraction for not collocated quantum dots.
