A dynamic potential interferometer working with three-dimensionally trapped atoms was studied. A time-dependent interaction picture was used to describe the quantum-state evolution. Probabilities for nonadiabatic transitions were compared to neighboring levels. For a realistic magnetic microtrap, parameters that suggest an experimental implementation in the near future were established. Based on the theoretical results, an optimization scheme for the reduction of vibrational excitations was developed.
