We propose a scheme to achieve the photonic and the phononic state transfers via the topological protected edge channel based on a one-dimensional small optomechanical lattice. We find that the optomechanical lattice can be mapped into a Su–Schrieffer–Heeger model after eliminating the counter rotating wave terms. By dint of the edge channel of the Su–Schrieffer–Heeger model, we show that the quantum state transfer between the photonic left and the right edge states can be achieved with a high fidelity. Especially, our scheme can also achieve another phononic state transfer based on the same channel via controlling the next-nearest-neighboring interactions between the cavity fields; this is different from the previous investigations achieving only one kind of quantum state transfer. Our scheme provides a novel, to the best of our knowledge, path to switch two different kinds of quantum state transfers in a controllable way.
