Project: Adiabatic switching of reversible chips.

abstract
Reversible logic gates are the necessary building blocks for the construction of digital computers without energy dissipation or entropy creation. The resulting computer functions without power supply busbars and is able to calculate both in forward and in backward direction. These circuits turn out to be naturally suited for so-called adiabatic switching. The project aims at determrining experimentally how far the adiabatic switching can lower the dynamic dissipation in digital computing.
