been 15 years since I was into process science, but I think it all depends on the process used to build the gate all around circuits. Etching a line is much harder than building a layer thickness, so there should be a chance.

BTW - I expect the metal etch widths to stop going down and that metal etch will become the limiting factor in 5nm and 3nm cells. They are already down to almost the theoretical limit of the science.

I miss doing custom cell layout and design. was the funnest part of my career.
