We report on the application of a dynamic decoherence control pulse sequence on a nuclear-quadrupole transition in Pr3+:Y(2)SiO(5). Process tomography is used to analyze the effect of the pulse sequence. The pulse sequence was found to increase the decoherence time of the transition to over 30 seconds. Although the decoherence time was significantly increased, the population terms were found to rapidly decay on the application of the pulse sequence. The increase of this decay rate is attributed to inhomogeneity in the ensemble. Methods to circumvent this limit are discussed.
