Dynamical decoupling (DD) is a popular technique for protecting qubits from the environment. However, unless special care is taken, experimental errors in the control pulses used in this technique can destroy the quantum information instead of preserving it. Here, we investigate techniques for making DD sequences robust against different types of experimental errors while retaining good decoupling efficiency in a fluctuating environment. We present experimental data from solid-state nuclear spin qubits and introduce a new DD sequence that is suitable for quantum computing and quantum memory.

Error tolerance of different DD sequences. The upper row shows the calculated fidelity F for standard DD sequences, while the lower row shows the results for the CPMG and PDD_1=XY-4 sequences when the \pi pulses are replaced by Knill pulses. The last panel corresponds to the KDD sequence, also based on the Knill pulse. Each panel shows the fidelity after 100 pulses as a function of flip-angle error and offset errors. The regions where the fidelity is lower than 0.95 are shown in white. The highest contour level is F=0.999.
