The surface plasmon resonances of gold contour bowtie nanostructures were simulated in the present study. The local electromagnetic field enhancement and the resonance wavelength for different dimensions of contour bowtie antennas with various contour thicknesses were investigated to find the critical conditions to induce additional enhancement compared to the solid bowtie antenna. Both the phase of the electric field and the bound surface charge distribution on the surface of the contour bowtie were studied to characterize the coupled plasmon configurations of the contour bowtie antenna. Also, a model was proposed to explain the resonance and hybridization behavior in the contour bowtie nanoantenna, and it was verified by examining the phase of the electric field in the polarization direction.
