The lower bound of the energy required to change the state of an electron waveguide Y-branch switch is not thermally limited, and the theoretical limit is orders of magnitude lower than the energy cost of information erasure. Thus as the power dissipation due to information erasure can be avoided by the use of logically reversible gates, such gates based on electron waveguide Y-branch switches promise circuits with extremely low power dissipation. In this paper, reversible logic based on electron waveguide Y-branch switches is proposed and discussed.
