People: Semiconductor lithography history:
Bill Arnold, Gene Fuller, Phil Ware, and their views about
the future of semiconductor lithography in 2003. The
history of technology development always looks like a
clear linear path in retrospect. But it’s never clear when
you’re in the middle of it. These historic videos take you
back to 2003, when 193nm immersion was still a concept,
157nm exposure tools were expected to be ready soon,
and progress on EUV was extremely difficult.

Here are their, then current, answers to these questions:
Are Semiconductor Lithography Enhancing Technology
options narrowing?
Will 193nm Immersion lithography work?
What are the highest Numerical Apertures and k-factors?
Do design rules make it easier for chip engineers in a
semiconductor wafer fab?
