"output equivalent" is not same as actual output. And the intermediate focus power has to increase to keep the same throughput for smaller features. It is not a fixed 100 W target. EUV production is such a highly inefficient process, the very opposite of green. So much energy going in, only for low efficiency production of radiation at many wavelengths over a broad range, all of which (except one) are then re-absorbed (i.e., wasted). At least excimer lasers produce a very narrow wavelength range.

If EUV is going to require double patterning, as has been suggested for the NXE 3300, the throughput is never going to catch up, and the cost effectiveness justification is gone.

If EUV's first node already requires double patterning, its third node will require quadruple.

Just read Ushio no longer supporting this activity. I think they saw the writing on the wall. http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20130509005460/en/USHIO-Consolidate-EUV-Business-Single-Unit-Japan
