The recently discovered Yang-Baxterization process for the quantum double of the dihedral group algebra, is presented keeping on mind the quantum computation. The products resultant from Yang-Baxterization process are interpreted as universal quantum gates using the Bryslinski’s theorem. Results are obtained for two-qubits and two-qutrits gates. Using the Zhang-Kauffman-Ge method (ZKGM), certain Hamiltonians responsible for the quantum evolution of the quantum gates are obtained. Possible physical systems such as anyons systems are mentioned as referents for practical implementation.
