I think they will have problem with positive charging of the surface.

To speed up the e-beam and make it more shaper reaching 9nm is excellent research and the scanning method instead of integral method made this win for the researchers.

The abstract read that all structures with 15 nm hp and above were fully resolved, but smaller ones had some resist residues. 15 nm hp is also about the limit current demonstrated by spacer etching.

Is resolution of 9nm possible from other other technologies like Photomask ? If answer is no then inspite of throughput issues e-beam resolution will become attractive.

I love the idea of "Extreme Ultraviolent UV" :)

The only thing I was impressed by was they could use few keV electrons, but the lithographic result is still too familiar, very rough lines and non-uniform dots in very thin resist. It is not a fault of the technique but a natural consequence of electrons being free to move after being released or injected in a film.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
