We show how to achieve full spectral characterization of general multiaxis additive noise. Our pulsed spectral estimation technique is based on sequence repetition and frequency-comb sampling and is applicable even to models where a large qubit energy-splitting is present (as is typically the case for spin qubits in semiconductors, for example), as long as the noise is stationary and a second-order (Gaussian) approximation to the controlled reduced dynamics is viable. Our new result is crucial…
