A register of quantum bits with fixed transition frequencies and weakly coupled to one another through simple linear circuit elements is an experimentally minimal architecture for a small-scale superconducting quantum information processor. Presently, the known schemes for implementing two-qubit gates in this system require microwave signals having amplitudes and frequencies precisely tuned to meet a resonance condition, leaving only the signal phases as free experimentally adjustable…
