Case Summary:

At North America Immigration Law Group, we recently received an EB-1B approval for a Senior Optical Scientist in the field of optical science. The beneficiary’s outstanding ability, highly skilled background, and impressive record of achievement provided a strong case for his EB-1B petition. His specialized research has focused on the design and development of state-of-the-art fiber, waveguide, and solid-state laser technologies and products for numerous practical applications in the private and public sectors (including in advanced scientific research, the energy sector, communications, healthcare and the defense industry). His research work had resulted in 17 peer-reviewed scientific articles, and 17 proceedings at national and international conferences. He had also reviewed 41 manuscripts for journals at the time we filed the case. Furthermore, the beneficiary had a total of 532 citations to his work by independent and leading researchers from prestigious institutions and organizations around the world, indicating the major significance of his work. The petitioner in this case was a private company. The significance of the beneficiary’s research is confirmed in the following quote by an independent recommender, “I cannot overemphasize the significance of [Client’s] breakthroughs. Such research is absolutely necessary for the U.S. to strengthen its efforts to fight climate change and bolster national security…research scientists from all over the country draw from this information and implement it on intimate levels in their own regions. This bears close resemblance to the ways in which research scientists from other nations have made use of [Client’s] research.” It was our goal to prove that this beneficiary qualified for classification as an outstanding professor or researcher given the international recognition for his outstanding achievements.  With the proof and documentation that we provided, his case was approved in 21 days (3 days after requesting premium processing).
