We proposed and demonstrated a gold bowtie-shaped dimer array semi-buried in a deformable polymer substrate. The wavelength tunability of coupled bonding localized surface plasmon resonance modes with different polarizations was confirmed by stretching simulations and experiments. The tuning operations were reconfigurable and reliable under applied elongations of up to 50%.
