Abstract: Recent progress in nanoscale optics is driven by the physics of electric and magnetic resonances supported by high-index dielectric nanoparticles. Here, we exploit optical bound states in the continuum in a subwavelength particle enhanced by an engineered substrate undergoing an epsilon-near-zero transition from an insulator to a conductor, and uncover how to boost dramatically high-order parametric nonlinear effects. Our strategy makes feasible an observation of a variety of multistep cascaded and multifrequency nonlinear effects in an individual subwavelength resonator. This would expand substantially the range of applications of Mie-resonant dielectric metaphotonics for highly efficient subwavelength optical circuitry, nonlinear metadevices, ultrasensitive hyperspectral sensing, and quantum nanophotonics.
