We propose a scheme to achieve quantum gate operations within decoherence-free subspace (DFS) using nitrogen-vacancy centers in separate diamond nanocrystals coupled to a whispering-gallery mode resonator. By virtue of Raman transitions in the dispersive regime, we present two different methods for realizing quantum gating within DFS in a deterministic way. The quantum gating is seriously treated by considering all kinds of decoherence mechanisms, and the experimental feasibility is achieved using currently available technology.
