Let $G$ be a graph with adjacency matrix $A$, let $H(t)=\exp(itA)$. $G$ is called a periodic graph if there exists a time $\tau$ such that $H(\tau)$ is diagonal. If $u$ and $v$ are distinct vertices in $G$, we say that perfect state transfer occurs from $u$ to $v$ if there exists a time $\tau$ such that $|H(\tau)_{u,v}|=1$. A necessary and sufficient condition for $G$ is periodic is given. We give the existence for the perfect state transfer between antipodal vertices in graphs with extreme diameter.
