Metallic nanoparticles and nanoantennas have
been extensively studied due to their capability to increase
electromagnetic field confinement which is essential in
numerous applications ranging from optoelectronics
to telecommunication and sensing devices. We show
that a double bowtie nanoantenna has a higher electric
field confinement in its gap compared to a single bowtie
nanoantenna, which is expected to give better fluorescence
enhancement of a single emitter placed in the gap. We show
that the electric field intensity can be further increased by
placing the double bowtie inside a ring grating structure
where the excitation of surface plasmon-polaritons (SPPs)
is achieved. We perform FDTD simulations to characterise
the double bowtie nanoantenna and study the effect of
its dimensions on the electric field enhancement in the
gap. Our proposed integrated structure with gratings is
shown to increase the electric field by a factor of 77 due
to a double cavity effect. Next steps would be to study the
fluorescence enhancement of emitters placed inside our
double bowtie / ring grating nanocavity to see if the strong
coupling regime can be attained.
