Case Summary:

In this case, the client that we had the pleasure of working with was a PhD Candidate in Pennsylvania in the field of Engineering Sciences. His specialized research has focused on the development of functional micro/nano systems, including color filters, solar collectors, active photonic devices, plasmofluidic lenses, optoacoustic tweezers, and portable flow cytometers as well as advanced nanofabrication techniques for the manufacture of innovative new imaging displays, medical diagnostic probes, and portable biomedical devices. His work had resulted in 39 peer-reviewed scientific articles, three book chapters, and presentations at national and international conferences. At the time that his case was filed, his publications had been cited at least 500 times by researchers around the world, serving as apparent and objective evidence of his major influence and impact on the field of endeavor, in addition to his sustained international acclaim. He had also conducted 52 manuscript reviews for at least 20 distinctive, internationally circulated journals. His superior level of expertise was confirmed in the following quote from an independent recommender, The contributions made by [client] have advanced the field of plasmonic research extracted from this research range from theoretical modeling and investigations to device design and applications. It is a remarkable achievement not only for the research ongoing within the US but also for other researchers all over the world to follow and emulate.” It was our goal to prove that our client qualified for classification as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability given that he sought to remain in the United States to continue work in the area of Engineering Sciences, and that his continued research would substantially and prospectively benefit the United States. With the proof and documentation that we provided, his case was approved in just 28 days.
