Testing all 3 competing lithography techniques sounds like an expensive proposition. It probably also means that it is still unclear which one will move to manufacturing...Kris

E-beam direct write...Long time coming!: I visited Bill Livesay at E-Beam Microfabrication (EBM) on Miramar Rd in San Diego in 1978, who was a pioneer in e-beam direct write; Howard Bogert published a newsletter in about 1980 for Dataquest, entitled, "E-Beam is Economic for Mask-Making". Maybe only the hard stop now faced by optical litho pushes e-beam to the forefront...or maybe not. We always have a way of extending the lifetime of 'inertial' technologies more than we ever imagined was possible.

To be fair, other companies have tried other NGLs besides EUV as well. Toshiba and Samsung have worked on imprint, IBM and Samsung worked on DSA. Long ago Intel, IBM tried xray.
