Vitaly N. Efimov (Russian: Вита́лий Никола́евич Ефи́мов) is a Russian theoretical physicist. He proposed the existence of a novel and exotic state of matter now dubbed the Efimov State as a researcher in A. F. Ioffe Physico-Technical Institute, USSR Academy of Sciences, Leningrad, USSR in his 1970 paper "Energy levels arising from resonant two-body forces in a three-body system". It was announced in 2006 that the existence of this state of matter had been confirmed.
He is now an affiliate professor of physics at the University of Washington.
