An efficient sensitivity analysis approach for quantum nanostructures is proposed. The imaginary time propagation method (ITP) is utilized to solve the Time Dependent Schrödinger’s Equation (TDSE). Using this method, an extraction of all the modes and their sensitivity with respect to all the design parameters have been performed with minimal computational effort. The sensitivity analysis is performed using the Adjoint Variable Method (AVM) and results are comparable to those obtained using Central Finite Difference Method (CFD) applied directly on the response level.
