   • Double patterning
   • Equipment suppliers using remote diagnostic capability
   • Manufacturing capacity, utilization and cycle time simulation
   • Implementation of 300mm prime advances

However, survey respondents did not expect to see the following technologies in production until 2013 or beyond:
   • 193 high index immersion lithography
   • Direct write
   • EUV lithography
   • Imprint lithography
