A novel conservative gate especially suiting a Quantum Dot Cellular Automata (QCA) majority voter-based design. The input-to-output mapping of the novel conservative QCA (CQCA) gate is: P=A; Q=AB+BC+AC [MV(A,B,C)]; R=A′B+A′C+BC [MV(A′,B,C)], where A, B, C are inputs and P, Q, R are outputs, respectively. A method of transferring information in a quantum-dot cellular automata device is also provided.
