Abstract: Many schemes to realize quantum state transfer in spin chains are not robust to random fluctuations in the spin-spin coupling strength. In efforts to achieve robust quantum state transfer, an adiabatic quantum population transfer scheme is proposed in this study. The proposed scheme makes use of a slowly moving external parabolic potential and is qualitatively explained in terms of the adiabatic following of a quantum state with a moving separatrix structure in the classical phase space of a pendulum analogy. Detailed aspects of our adiabatic population transfer scheme, including its robustness, is studied computationally. Applications of our adiabatic scheme in quantum information transfer are also discussed, with emphasis placed on the usage of a dual spin chain to encode quantum phases. The results should also be useful for the control of electron tunneling in an array of quantum dots. © 2008 The American Physical Society.
