    Plasmonic metasurfaces exhibiting collective responses known as surface lattice resonances (SLRs) show potential for realizing flat photonic components for wavelength-selective processes, including lasing and optical nonlinearities. However, postfabrication tuning of SLRs remains challenging, limiting the applicability of SLR-based components. Here, we demonstrate how the properties of high quality factor SLRs are easily modified by breaking the symmetry of the nanoparticle surroundings. We break the symmetry by changing the refractive index of the overlying immersion oil by controlling the ambient temperature of the device. We show that a modest temperature change of 10 °C can increase the quality factor of the SLR from 400 to 750. Our results demonstrate accurate and reversible modification of the properties of the investigated SLRs, paving the way toward tunable SLR-based photonic devices. More generally, we show how symmetry breaking of the environment can be utilized for efficient and potentially ultrafast modification of the SLR properties.
