Adiabatic pumping via avoided crossings in stiffness modulated quasiperiodic beams

In this manuscript we report on adiabatic pumping in quasiperiodic stiffness modulated beams. We show that distinct topological states populating nontrivial gaps can nucleate avoided crossings characterized by edge-to-edge transitions. Such states are inherently coupled when a smooth variation of the modulation phase is induced along a synthetic dimension, resulting in topological edge-to-edge transport stemming from distinct polarizations of the crossing states. We first present a general framework to estimate the required modulation speed for a given transition probability in time. Then, this analysis tool is exploited to tailor topological pumping in a stiffness modulated beam.
