Also, the de Broglie wavelength of a thermalized electron is 7-8 nm.

Roughness seems to be most important factor at this scale !

Being involved in semiconductor research, 10 nm is feasible but I wonder id economics would sustain it.

I think any litho-related consortium work esp. EUV is still carried out by SEMATECH and IMEC. This new consortium looks interesting because it is initiated by the Japanese government. I think Taiwan and China got snubbed because of the Diayou Islands and East China Sea incident. That's why TSMC is strangely absent from the initial listing. Hopefully some Taiwan participants would be allowed.

It is interesting that the Nikkei report does not indicate that Samsung is targeting 10 nm for DRAM. Does it mean DRAM won't make it that far?

I think a 3DIC system would perform better but definitely cost more than multiple patterning on just the critical layers.

10 nm ~ 40 atoms across, so I think they would need to try to figure out how to deal with naturally increasing roughness and its impact on transistor performance.

It could involve a number of equipment and design vendors as well as foundries and IDMs.

what does chip technology mean...lithography technology or resist or design or other. I do not think that it is related to lithography or resist because Intel is already supporting EUV and it does not make sense to create another consortium without any litho partner.
