Case Summary:

When in April 2020, we were approached by a German design engineer with a proposed endeavor to study material functionality from the quantum to the macroscopic level through a data-driven approach utilizing microscopy, interferometry, and spectroscopy to advance computing technologies, we were quick to notice that he had collaborated with the Department of Energy, University of California as well as Cornell University in the past. He had also received a very competitive grant given by the U.S. Department of Energy. This helped us establish the fact that his research was of value to the United States. Based on this, we strategized our approach to his NIW (National Interest Waiver) case.

We went ahead and gathered detailed information about his academic and professional background. We saw to it that his needs were understood as were those of the NIW criteria set by USCIS. This became possible due to our immense experience in the field, having helped some 25,000+ clients receive positive outcomes in their respective cases. We thus included some of the following things in his customized petition packet.

  • We noted that his proposed endeavor has broad implications for the U.S. Recently, the U.S. has recognized the importance of maintaining its global leadership in the semiconductor industry based on increasing competition from Asia and the significance of remaining independent of the global supply chain. His investigation into improvements in semiconductor technology is contributing to the growth of this industry in the U.S. and his work in this area also contributes to the commercialization of quantum computers.
  • We highlighted that his research has resulted in 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them first-authored). Moreover, these papers have been published in the top journals in the field, reflecting his peers’ recognition of the value of this research. These publications have also been cited a total of 422 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of physics.
  • One of the 4 recommendation letters he obtained on our advice had the following to say about him:

“In order to maintain the economic and technological leadership of the United States, it is necessary to focus on the work of [the client], which provides considerable advancements in the field’s understanding of superconducting materials. His studies provide explanations of how superconductors conduct electricity in high magnetic fields, which is necessary for the continued advancement of these types of technologies in the United States.”

We are grateful to him for his trust in the North America Immigration Law Group and we are delighted to have been of aid to him in this process.
