Summary form only given. Controlled coherent interactions between pairs of neutral atoms can be designed in tight micro-traps such as optical lattices which allow the creation of highly entangled multiparticle states. Such systems benefit from suppressed decoherence because neutrals couple weakly to the environment and the interactions are strictly pairwise. The main source of decoherence is spontaneous emission which can be made negligible if the two atom interactions are performed fast compared to the scattering rate.We have shown the possibility of using induced electric dipole-dipole interactions between pairs of atoms to perform quantum logic gates with high fidelity.
