On January 31st, 2018, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Field of Optical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Optical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Research Associate

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Florida

Approval Notice Date: January 31st, 2018

Processing Time: 9 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

With a focus on the development of state-of-the-art ultrafast lasers, there is no denying that our client—a postdoctoral research associate from China—is progressing the field of optical engineering. With various achievements under his belt, he is an influential researcher whose opinions are highly respected by his peers.

When he approached us to help him get one step closer to a green card via EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability), we carefully evaluated his credentials to be sure that we could build a strong case. We determined that we would detail his 15 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 10 peer-reviewed papers published in conference proceeding, the 139 times his work was cited, and the 52 times he judged the work of others. Not just that, we carefully reviewed and summarized his research, which addresses some of the United States’ most pressing issues in understanding fundamental physics, increasing the speed of electronics and sensors, thread identification, and life science through the development of many advanced, powerful ultrafast lasers.

An important part of our client’s customized EB1A petition packet consisted of six recommendation letters, all of which were contributed by other well-known optical engineers. These experts highlighted the fact that our client’s work is in the best interest of the US and that he should be allowed to continue conducting optical science research in the country. According to one of these recommenders: “Given his record of success, it is clear that he will continue to be such a vital resource to not only the field of optical engineering, but the scientific community as a whole. It is therefore imperative his stay in the U.S. be unimpeded so that he may continue to produce such important work.”

As our client opted to file his EB1A petition with Premium Processing (PP), he received notification of case approval merely 9 days later. We congratulate him on this win and wish him the best as he continues to advance the field of optical engineering.
