Case Summary:

An optical physics expert came to North America Immigration Law Group with his NIW (National Interest Waiver) case. He needed our expertise to help him compile and file his case to the USCIS. he had a degree in nanovison engineering and had been employed as an associate professor in the area. His overall experience of 11 years in the field spoke for itself. So once we had gathered enough information about his work and achievements, we began working to get the petition together. Our petition was customized with the following information about his work:

  • He wanted to continue his research on new methods for the generation, amplification, utilization, and analysis of terahertz waves in order to expand their application in military, industrial, and biomedical settings.
  • This research was of great importance because it has introduced powerful new methods of nondestructive testing, because it has increased the strength of terahertz wave emitters with industrial and biomedical applications, and because it has resulted in the development of new components for 6G wireless networks. Hence his proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States.
  • He has also been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for authoritative journals in the field and has completed at least 70 reviews to date. Since only the most accomplished researchers are invited to serve as editors for peer-reviewed journals, this demonstrates that the client is widely considered a leader in the field of optical physics.
  • His research work has produced 29 peer-reviewed journal articles (12 of them first-authored) and 2 papers in the proceedings of peer-reviewed conferences.
  • Not only this but his research has also gone on to influence his peers. That is, these publications have been cited a total of 588 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of optical physics.
  • Furthermore, we noted that his study has received funding from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, which stood as another testimonial to the reliability of his work.
  • Finally, we added two letters of recommendation written by other experts for him, which helped corroborate the work he had been doing.

So, we noted that his research into the emission, detection, and amplification of high-frequency electromagnetic waves and optical components for 6G communication systems will continue to be circulated to others in the field through the publication of papers in peer-reviewed journals and conferences, making his work of continuing importance for the United States. These arguments were seen favorably by the adjudication committee at the USCIS, who granted him the approval in just 2 months and 20 days.

We are glad to have been a part of his journey to NIW approval and we wish him the best of luck.
