IBM gets virtual and cloudy with 22nm chips

@ let me explain Manuel... (and thank you Toby)

The whole point is that the water shortens the wavelength, without changing the frequency. The light incident on the silicon has exactly the same frequency with or without. Wavelength is what affects the ability to resolve detail. The water "hack" allows use of the same light source, lens tech etc, whereas EUV is a whole new ballpark of pain.

Higher frequency?

Don't you mean shorter wavelength, or is this special water?
