Quantum cellular automata (QCA) circuits are an alternative CMOS technology. Also, given the growing importance of reducing energy consumption, the plan of use reversible logic in QCA technology is a new issue, which reduces power dissipation in circuits.

In this paper, a reversible multiplexer 4*1 circuit was designed, and this multiplexer is simulated using the QCA Designer software. Therefore, according to its reversibility, power consumption was reduced, and by error tolerance mechanisms, a bit error is prevented.
