Yes that timeline sounds right.
This is a Sino-German joint research of a new generation Light Source.
Trumpf, the German partner to ASML would probably get access to this research.
Trumpf supplies Laser Amplifiers to ASML for its EUVL.
So i would assume that Trumpf/ASML would be looking into this new technology as well.
It will probably end up being a race to see who, CTEC/SMEE or ASML will first develop the next generation EUVL with a new Light Source.
Thanks @WTAN so who owned the IP, since it is being research in China, they should owned it. :cool:
