Case Summary:

The EB1-A or Alien of Extraordinary Ability was specially designed for those noncitizens of extraordinary ability who are outstanding professors or researchers or are multinational executives or managers. Specializing in EB1-A cases, our team at NAILG takes up every case with a zeal to provide the best service. This is what we were able to do for our EB1-A client from China working in optical engineering as a product development engineer. Holding a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, the client’s work spanned academia and industry.

We got to know that he is one of the few leading fiber-optic experts in optical engineering, and has achieved a consistent and notable record of success and influence in this area of study. He was especially well-known for overcoming the barriers to using four-wave mixing and Raman scattering to implement energetic and wideband frequency conversion, a remarkable achievement that has been recognized by his peers. Furthermore, his work received funding from several national institutions, including the Office of Naval Research, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the National Natural Science Foundation of China.

Along with this funding support, his work had been recognized by authoritative scientific journals in the field that had invited him to review and evaluate the work of his peers no fewer than 16 times. He also actively engaged his peers in the field of optical engineering by authoring and co-authoring 23 peer-reviewed articles that have been published in international journals and conference proceedings.

At the same time, these publications have been cited 393 times by researchers in at least 37 countries according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of optical engineering. In fact, he is one of the top 1% of the most highly cited authors publishing on topics in optics over the past 10 years according to Microsoft Academic.

Thus, the unique and expansive expertise our client brings to the table has enabled him to contribute significantly to the field of optical engineering, extending the reasonable expectation that he will continue to do so within the United States. To make his victory certain we added 4 letters of support collected from other experts who knew his work.

So, when his approval came through, we were delighted to have worked with him on this case. Our firm wishes him all the best in his future endeavors.
