Abstract

We show that by dynamically modulating the gate fields so as to minimize the spectral overlap of the decoherence and modulation spectra specifically for each qubit, and concurrently controlling all qubits, one can significantly increase the fidelity of quantum computation. Notably, crossdecoherence, introduced by two-qubit entanglement, can be eliminated by appropriate dynamical control. In this scheme, contrary to traditional schemes, one can increase the gate duration, while, simultaneously, increasing the total gate fidelity. Experimental scenarios involving laser-driven cold-ions and coldatoms are shown to benefit from this counterintuitive scheme.
