Coherent energy exchange between plasmons and excitons is a phenomenon that arises in the strong coupling regime resulting in distinct hybrid states. The DNA-origami technique provides an ideal framework to custom-tune plasmon-exciton nanostructures. By employing this well controlled self assembly process, we realized hybrid states by precisely positioning metallic nanoparticles in a defined spatial arrangement with fixed nanometer-sized interparticle spacing. Varying the nanoparticle diameter between 30 nm and 60 nm while keeping their separation distance constant allowed us to precisely adjust the plasmon resonance of the structure to accurately match the energy frequency of a J-aggregate exciton. With this system we obtained strong plasmon-exciton coupling and studied far 170 field scattering at the single-structure level. The individual structures displayed normal mode splitting up to meV. The plasmon tunability and the strong field confinement attained with nanodimers on. DNA-origami renders an ideal tool to bottom up assembly plasmon-exciton systems operating at room temperature.
