Major Scientific Advances.

During scientific career, Zakhidov have discovered several important phenomena and invented new concepts in physics: 1. Predicted theoretically the photoinduced charge transfer from conjugated polymer (as weak donor) to fullerene C60 (as weak acceptor) and experimentally pioneered with Yoshino and Morita; 2. Predicted theoretically coupled states of excitons with charges in organic matter. This coupled electron-exciton complexes have been found experimentally.
