The main source of decoherence in optical lattices is spontaneous emission, but this can be negligible if all manipulations are performed rapidly compared to the phonon scattering rate. A study was conducted to consider the possibility of using resonantly induced electric dipole-dipole interactions to engineer two-qubit operations such as the swap gate and the controlled-phase which, together with single qubit operations, can perform arbitrary quantum computations.
