Welcome to the website of Adachi research group.
We are a group of scientists with diverse expertise to develop in-situ optical spectroscopy methods to understand various interesting phenomena at molecular level. One of our major interests is a fundamental crystal nucleation process.

We had so much fun participating in "La Nuit de la Science" at le parc de la Perle du Lac on July 9-10, 2022. The weather was so good and we even got a nice group picture in the same T-shirts with the Mont Blanc :) (posted July 11, 2022)
