CMOS based computing is reaching its limits. To take computation beyond Moores law (the number of transistors and hence processing power on a chip doubles every 18 months to 3 years) requires research explorations in (i) new materials, devices, and processes, (ii) new architectures and algorithms, (iii) new paradigm of logic bit representation. The focus is on fundamental new ways to compute under the umbrella of rebooting computing such as spintronics, quantum computing, adiabatic and reversible computing. Therefore, this thesis highlights explicitly Quantum computing and Adiabatic logic, two new computing paradigms that come under the umbrella of rebooting computing. Quantum computing is investigated for its promising application in high-performance computing. The first contribution of this thesis is the design of two resource-efficient designs for quantum integer division. The first design is based on non-restoring division algorithm and the second one is based on restoring division algorithm. Both the designs are compared and shown to be superior to the existing work in terms of T-count and T-depth. The proliferation of IoT devices which work on low-power also has drawn interests to the rebooting computing. Hence, the second contribution of this thesis is proving that Adiabatic Logic is a promising candidate for implementation in IoT devices. The adiabatic logic family called Symmetric Pass Gate Adiabatic Logic (SPGAL) is implemented in PRESENT-80 lightweight algorithm. Adiabatic Logic is extended to emerging transistor devices.
