Incoherent quantum charge tunneling forms the basis of semiconductor devices. However it is well known from atomic and optical work, that coherent tunneling can be significantly faster and in principle, coherent transfer is dissipationless, i.e. the charge being transferred does not exchange heat with the environment. Furthermore, adiabatic controls are inherently robust provided the adiabaticity criterion is satisfied. Adiabatic control methods are therefore preferable to ensure high-fidelity operation despite increased operating time. We describe recent work towards understanding charge transfer mechanisms based on adiabatic passage techniques with all-electrical controls in three-, five- and seven-dot systems based on Coherent Tunneling Adiabatic Paassage (CTAP). We derive analytical values for the important eigenstates and the adiabaticity criteria for these schemes. These analytical results allow us to make comments regarding the scalability of these schemes to realistic quantum networks.
