Case Summary:

At North America Immigration Law, we recently received an EB1B approval for a Process Yield and Integration Engineer in the field of nanophotonics and nanotechnology. The beneficiary’s outstanding ability, highly skilled background, and impressive record of achievement provided a strong case for his EB1B petition. His work had primarily focused on piezoelectric crystals for MEMS applications, tunable waveguide filters for PMN-PT crystal systems, failure analysis in consumer electronics development, and research and development of new laser processing techniques. His work had resulted in 8 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 3 conference proceedings, and his work had been cited 41 times at the time that we filed the case.  This served as apparent and objective evidence of his major influence and impact on his field, in addition to his sustained international acclaim.  In addition, he had served on the editorial advisory board of a leading internally-circulated journal, as well as a regular reviewer for five additional journals.The petitioner in this case was a privately held company. The value of his work is confirmed in the following quote by an independent recommender, “[His] first major impact on the scientific community was his creation of an actuation scheme for piezoelectric crystals. While the traditional method used metal electrodes on either side of the cantilever or multilayer stacks in bimorphs to generate motion in a cantilever beam, these methods have become outdated. In order to . . . make technology more energy-efficient and diminutive in size, [he] developed a new single-sided electrode structure, which scientists now refer to as interdigitated electrode structures. To the best of my knowledge, this was the first implementation of single-sided electrodes for actuating piezoelectric crystals.”  It was our goal to prove that this beneficiary qualified for classification as an outstanding professor or researcher given the international recognition for his outstanding achievements.  His petition was approved in 6 months and 11 days.
