Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: November 20th, 2023

Processing Time: 7 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Our client is a visiting scientist who proposed to continue his work in the field of semiconductors and microelectronics. He is currently focused on developing novel spintronics devices, which have already significantly advanced the national interest through the advancements in spin injector technologies. His research has been published in some of the highest-impact journals and conference proceedings in the field of endeavor, which has resulted in a total of 90 peer-reviewed papers and 3 patents.

Therefore, he sought assistance from the North America Immigration Law Group to file an I-140 petition under the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) category. The goal was to present his achievements in the best possible way. We thoroughly evaluated the veracity of his credentials and showcased his substantial merits in his field in the EB1A petition package. This package was then forwarded to the USCIS for further adjudication of his case.

We outlined a few key pieces of information in his EB1A petition package, which determined the successful outcome.

  • We concluded that his research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues, including enhancing technological efficiency and innovation.
  • We emphasized that his publications accumulated 1,675 citations from at least 65 countries. By utilizing his research, his peers gained a deeper understanding of the complexities involved in this study and its importance in superconducting systems. The implications of these findings are substantial for advancing the field, as they support intensive scientific research aiming to improve superconducting devices, spin-based electronics, and quantum information processing.
  • Besides, we mentioned that he has conducted 108 peer reviews to date. It is evident that our client’s impact is yet again exemplified by his involvement in conducting peer-reviews and evaluating scientific manuscripts for prestigious journals. Additionally, his role as an associate editor for the Journal of Semiconductors solidifies his position as a prominent figure in the scientific community.
  • These contributions, coupled with his distinctive publication record, active participation in conferences, and relentless pursuit of cutting-edge research, clearly demonstrate his irreplaceable effort to advance the field that is crucial for further technological advancement.

Furthermore, our client’s work in spin injector technologies has been funded by the French National Research Agency and the National Natural Science Foundation of China. This funding supports projects that promote basic and targeted research, technological innovation, technology transfer, and public-private partnerships. His work has contributed to the development of semiconductors and microelectronics and has advanced spintronics, leading to the creation of more efficient and faster electronic devices.

To bolster his case even further, we included 4 recommendation letters in his EB1A petition packet obtained from his fellow experts in the field. One of them contributed the following statement:

“As a researcher who works in the same field, I confirm that [client’s] research has not only garnered worldwide acclaim but has also solidified his status as a distinguished and highly respected figure in the field. His superior craftsmanship and knack for developing novel materials for advanced microelectronics, spintronics, and optoelectronics have truly set him apart from his peers. From his work with spin injectors to his pioneering advancements in spinterfaces and resonant tunneling in magnetic tunnel junctions, the extensive list of his striking undertakings stands as a testament to his rare combination of considerable skill, unique perspective, and meticulous approach to research.”

Wegreen has successfully gotten more than 32,000 approved cases and has once again achieved a remarkable feat by obtaining EB1A approval for this client. Our client received this approval just 7 days after we submitted his case to USCIS. Thanks to the premium processing service to get expedited results. We are glad that we could convince USCIS of our client’s unwavering commitment to continuous research and ability to consistently produce outstanding results, making him a global leader in technological advancements in optoelectronics. We express our gratitude to our client for choosing our law firm, as we believe our contribution was a significant element in his success.
