Fast and robust quantum state transfer (QST) is a major requirement in quantum control and in scalable quantum information processing. Topological protection has emerged as a promising route for the realization of QST robust against sizable imperfections in the network. Here, a scheme is presented for robust QST of topologically protected edge states in a dimeric Su–Schrieffer–Heeger spin chain assisted by Landau–Zener tunneling. As compared to topological QST protocols based on Rabi flopping proposed in recent works, the method is more advantageous in terms of robustness against both diagonal and off‐diagonal disorder in the chain, without a substantial increase of the interaction time.
