We consider an implementation of a two-qubit entangling gate between trapped ions controlled by fully overlapping laser pulses. We particularly address the role of a relative phase between the pulses in the gate design. Though, in general, the relative phase determines the exact form of the two-qubit operation, it is shown that it affects only its single qubit part and has no effect on its entangling content. Based on a general canonical decomposition of the evolution operator we demonstratedoi:10.1103/physreva.89.032301 fatcat:2anzzjoi4nbnnirh3ficy7g3g4
