We propose a method for switchable coupling between superconducting qubits using double resonance. The interqubit coupling is achieved by applying near-resonant oscillating fields to the two qubits. The deviation from resonance relaxes the criterion of strong driving fields while still allowing for a fully entangling two-qubit gate. This method avoids some of the shortcomings of previous proposals for switchable coupling. We discuss the possible application of our proposal to a pair of inductively coupled flux qubits, and we consider the extension to phase qubits.
