We present a powerful sensitivity analysis method for devices in a photonic crystal.  The method is based on a Wannier basis field expansion and efficient matrix analysis techniques for finding eigenvalue and transmission gradients with respect to the perturbation.  The method enables fast analysis of a large number of dielectric perturbation scenarios for multiple devices in a photonic crystal.  We verify the method with FDTD and plane wave expansion calculations.
