Title: A synthetic biological quantum optical system

Strong coupling between plasmon modes and chlorins in synthetic light-harvesting maquette proteins yields hybrid light–matter states (plexcitons) whose energies are controlled by design of protein structure, enabling the creation of new states not seen under weak coupling.
