The development of computing machines found great success in the last decades. But the ongoing miniaturization of integrated circuits will reach its limits in the near future. Shrinking transistor sizes and power dissipation are the major constraints in the development of smaller and more complex circuits. Reversible logic provides an alternative that may overcome many of these problems in the future. For low-power design, reversible logic gates are very much in demand for the future computing technologies as they are known to produce zero power dissipation under ideal conditions. This paper proposes design of new reversible logic gate and some of its applications. The quantum cost of a reversible logic circuit can be minimized by reducing the number of reversible logic gates.
