Synthesis and testing are two important areas of reversible logic.
Reversible logic is gaining importance in recent years largely due to its property of low power consumption. It has a wide range of applications which include advance computing, low power CMOS, optical information processing, quantum computing, DNA cryptography and nanotechnology. Reversible gates are the building blocks of quantum computation. This paper presents a novel design of D, JK and T flip-flops using the existing reversible gates. All circuits have been modeled and verified using Verilog and Modelsim. A comparative study in terms of the number of gates, number of garbage outputs and quantum costs is also presented.

Reversible Logic Circuit Synthesis
AB - Reversible or information-lossless circuits have applications in digital signal processing, communication, computer graphics and cryptography. They are also a fundamental requirement in the emerging field of quantum computation. We investigate the synthesis of reversible circuits that employ a minimum number of gates and contain no redundant input-output line-pairs (temporary storage channels). We prove constructively that every even permutation can be implemented without temporary storage using NOT, CNOT and TOFFOLI gates. We describe an algorithm for the synthesis of optimal circuits and study the reversible functions on three wires, reporting distributions of circuit sizes. Finally, in an application important to quantum computing, we synthesize oracle circuits for Grover's search algorithm, and show a significant improvement over a previously proposed synthesis algorithm.
