AMD, IBM, Micron and Infineon, as well as the University at Albany, are allocating more than $580 million toward the effort.
An experimental version of immersion lithography could help cut the cost of making chips in the future.
Imprint lithography is among the many emerging technologies that could extend the life of Moore's Law.
Researchers at the University of Wisconsin have come up with a way to organize molecules through lithography, the science of "drawing" chip circuits.
The company faces changes in its chip manufacturing schedule because a new batch of lithography equipment, due in 2005, now is set to arrive sometime in 2007.
Using Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography, or EUV, the chipmaker may be able to save the threatened "law" that says the number of transistors on a chip doubles every 18 to 24 months.
