Heat generation in plasmonic nanostructures has attracted enormous attention due to the ability of these nanostructures to generate high temperatures in nanoscale volumes using far-field irradiation, enabling applications ranging from photothermal therapy to fast (sub-nanosecond) thermal optical switching. Here we investigate the optical and thermal response of a heterogeneous trimer structure composed of a gold nanoparticle surrounded by two larger silver nanoparticles analytically and numerically. We observe that this type of multi-scale multi-material plasmonic oligomer can produce temperature changes over two orders of magnitude higher than possible with isolated gold nanoparticles.
