This paper presents a new method to optimize the quantum costs of reversible circuits. A single quantum implementation of the Toffoli-3 gate has been used to decompose reversible circuits into quantum circuits. Reconfigured quantum templates using splitting rules are introduced. The Controlled-
, and Controlled-
gates can be split into two gates – splitting rules are derived from this fact. Quantum costs of reversible circuits are measured by the number of two-qubit operations. Therefore, the costs of reconfigured templates will be unchanged when the splitting rules are applied. Although the number of quantum gates of reconfigured templates increases, their quantum cost remains invariant. Experimental results show that significant cost reductions can be achieved with the proposed method.
