Abstract

Shortcuts to adiabaticity, originally developed in the context of quantum control, are powerful tools for the design of high coupling efficiency, robust, and short coupled-waveguide devices. The counterdiabatic protocol cancels the unwanted coupling in system evolution by the addition of a counterdiabatic term. The invariant-based inverse-engineering approach designs system evolution using the decoupled eigenstates of the Lewis–Riesenfeld invariant. The single-shot shaped-pulse technique directly parameterizes the solution of the coupled-mode equation. Starting from the counterdiabatic protocol, we show that these seemingly very different shortcuts to adiabaticity techniques are equivalent in the framework of coupled-waveguide systems. When combined with perturbation treatment of the coupled-mode equation, robust coupled-waveguide devices against errors can be obtained.
