Abstract: A reversible memory element is provided. The reversible memory element comprises a reversible memory cell comprising a Josephson junction and a passive inductor. A ballistic interconnect is connected to the reversible memory cell by a bidirectional input/output port. A polarized input fluxon propagating along the ballistic interconnect exchanges polarity with a stationary stored fluxon in the reversible memory cell in response to the input fluxon reflecting off the reversible memory cell.
