Doctor of physical-mathematical sciences, associate member of USSR Scientific Academy (1970), academician of the National Scientific Academy of Azerbaijan (1967; associate member 1955), laureate of Azerbaijan State Reward (1972). He graduated from the faculty of Physics-Mathematics of the Azerbaijani State Pedagogical Institute (present Azerbaijani Pedagogical University) (1941) and graduate course of the Institute of Physics-Mathematics of the National Scientific Academy of Azerbaijan (1948). He was a director of the institutes of Physics-Mathematics (1950, 1957-58) and Physics (1959-1968),of the National Scientific Academy of Azerbaijan, academic secretary of the Physics-mathematics and techniques department of the National Scientific Academy of Azerbaijan (1968-1970) and president of the National Scientific Academy of Azerbaijan (1970-1983). Abdullayev got scientific experience as a result of the researches of selenium, tellurium, their combination and the physics of semi-conductor devices prepared on the basis of these two elements and the role of selenium in biological processes. With the leadership of Abdulayev new long-term electric engines were invented. USA and French patents were given to Abdulayev’s semi-conductor material for thermo-electric turners. He created a scientific school on semi-conductor physics in Azerbaijan. With the initiative of Abdullayev the chair of semi-conductor physics was established at Baku State University in 1956. Abdullayev was a member of the scientific board of “ Physics and Chemistry of semi-conductors” attached to the Presidium of the USSR Scientific Academy, chief of the “The problems of physics” scientific board and the presidium of “Bilik” society of the republic and chief of the State Awards Committee of Azerbaijani Republic in the fields of science and techniques. He is an author of 11 monographs, ore than 300 scientific works and 40 inventories.

Abdullayev’s book “Electron semi-conductors and their applications” (1952) is the first work published in Azerbaijan languages on the physics of semi-conductors. He was elected a deputy of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR (VIII-XI summon). Abdullayev was granted with the orders of Lenin, Red Labor Flag and the golden medal named after S.I.Vavilov of the USSR scientific academy. The Institute of Physics of the National Scientific Academy of Azerbaijan in front of the Institute a memorial plague which is his bas-relief.
