According to Zahn’s obituary, his research interests in electrodynamics ranged “from the theoretical to the practical.” This included high-voltage charge transport and breakdown phenomena in dielectrics; battery technology; applying magnetic processes for oil cleanup; detecting buried land mines; and charged, polarizable, and magnetic fluids.

Zahn also conducted research on how electricity moves “through different mediums” and penned a seminal textbook in the field, Electromagnetic Field Theory: A Problem Solving Approach.

For Zahn’s contributions to his field, he became an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers fellow in 1993 and received the Paris Sciences Scholar ESPCI medal in 2000

Zahn has taught 6.013 (Electromagnetics and Applications), 6.641 (Electromagnetic Fields, Forces, and Motion), 6.642 (Continuum Electromechanics), and 6.UAT (Preparation for Undergraduate Advanced Project).

Zahn “collected stamps and enjoyed bicycling, baseball, good food, and time with his family,” his obituary states. He and his wife Linda “shared a love of travel and were able to visit much of the world.” He is survived by his wife, four children, and seven grandchildren.
