The fundamental problem is the EUV tool itself, even the source, absorbs EUV.

@yalanland. It is the power of the EUV light source that is the limiting factor. A couple of different types of source have been tried. As well as getting the source to shine that bright I believe that reliability and uptime is an issue. If you go brighter but have to take the machine down to faff around with the source for large periods of time the wafer throughput you gain during the uptime you more than lose in the downtime.

It is interesting to know that the throughput of the NXE tools is limited by the powersupply. What is the biggest challenge in scaling the power supply from 11w to 100w ?

22 nm is what it is meant to be not 0.22 nm.

There are many practiced tricks not related to litho tool to get logic minimum feature sizes smaller than the contemporary memory half-pitch.
