Here we suggest a new approach to trap light in an all-dielectric open subwavelength cavity. The interplay of a Fano resonance and a nonlinear response enables storing the electromagnetic radiation within the open dielectric cavity for a long period of time. The proposed light trapping mechanism may be an interesting alternative to conventional electrically-large whispering gallery resonators, or to core-shell plasmonic resonators sensitive
to ohmic losses.
