Sharp optical resonances in high-index dielectric nanostructures have recently attracted significant attention for their promising applications in nanophotonics. Fano resonances, as well as resonances associated with bound states in the continuum (BIC), have independently shown a great potential for applications in nanoscale lasers, sensors, and nonlinear optical devices. Here, we demonstrate experimentally a close connection between Fano and quasi-BIC resonances excited in individual dielectric nanoantennas. We analyze systematically the resonant response of AlGaAs nanoantennas pumped with a structured light in the near-infrared range. We trace a variation of the scattering spectrum that fully agrees with an analytical expression governed by a Fano parameter and observe directly a transition to a quasi-BIC resonance. Our results suggest a unified approach toward the analysis of sharp resonances in subwavelength nanostructures originating from strong coupling of optical modes that can provide high energy localization for enhanced light-matter interactions.
