Case Summary:

An expert in micro and nanoscale systems engineering from Nepal came to us for his National Interest Waiver (NIW) approval. So our experienced team ascertained that his case won the approval of the USCIS by tailoring his petition to fit his profile. This was made possible by collecting data from his academic and professional documents, such as the following:

  • His proposed endeavor was to work on the development and implementation of improved techniques for performing thermal transport analysis of advanced nanomaterials. This would help identify and improve thermal transport properties for the cutting-edge thermal management of electronic devices, in addition to developing improved fabrication techniques for micro and nanoscale devices.
  • His research was of substance because it significantly progresses the area of nanotechnology and products that incorporate nanotechnology, like flexible electronics. These emerging technologies represent a new technological revolution that is paving the way for groundbreaking advances across a diverse array of industries.
  • His research also contributes to these endeavors through the development of nanocomposite substrate materials for use in a variety of nanotechnology applications. His advancements in substrate materials are crucial for resolving issues in thermal management, as they efficiently remove excess heat from electronic devices.
  • This is why he also received letters of appreciation from 2 sources, one dependent and another independent. Two passages from these are given below to demonstrate the trust our client had gained:

“[The client] investigated and developed a biodegradable substrate material for use in flexible electronics. Not only is his material significantly better for the environment, but it has also accomplished higher thermal conductivity than its inferior petroleum-based counterpart. Thus, it is evident that [the client’s] research is imperative to the enhanced design and manufacture of flexible electronics.”

“[The client’s] research has directly contributed to this effort. Indeed, his work has revealed that copper nanowires drastically improve the thermal conductivity of polymer nanocomposites for use in flexible electronics. Thus, [the client’s] research is vital for the development of novel, cost-effective polymer nanocomposite substrate materials for flexible electronics with advanced thermal management capabilities.”

  • So, it was obvious that his proposed endeavor had broad implications for the United States since micro and nanotechnologies are beneficial to a multitude of U.S. sectors, including information technology, homeland security, defense and military, medicine, transportation, energy, food safety, environmental science, and more.
  • He is not only substantially improving the efficacy of various technologies through these innovations, but he is also advancing the sustainability of nanotechnology fabrication and is thus also aiding the environmental interests of the nation. The developments he has made, and continues to make, in nanomaterials and micro and nanoscale devices ensure that the United States is a world leader in the most cutting-edge technologies of our time.
  • Due to its evident national importance, his research has also been supported with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
  • Along with this, he has also completed at least 3 reviews to date and published 10 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored) which have been cited a total of 96 times according to Google Scholar.

So, we noticed that he has pursued research directly related to his proposed endeavor of developing and implementing improved techniques for performing thermal transport analysis of advanced nanomaterials for 8 years. Along with this, he had gathered a considerable reputation both academically and within the industry. So getting him the NIW approval was not very difficult. We are proud to say that we have been a part of his success story and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
