Directed self-assembly is not the whole answer, but it is an answer and its one that has the potential to touch other aspects of extending lithography down to sub-wavelength dimensions. I'm excited about what SRC and other researcher groups developing advanced copolymer formulations may be cooking up :)
This is good stuff with great promise, but of course this is still a nascent technology that will not be manufacturing ready in time to stop Moore's law from stalling in the next few years. Perhaps if we hadn't spent so much money on EUV lithography then resources could have been made available to accelerate directed self-assembly technology years ago.
