The probability of the bound state in reversible, geminate dissociation-recombination reactions decays at long times as t-3/2 rather than exponentially. We present the recent theoretical derivation of this long-time behavior and single-photon counting data that verify the theoretical prediction over 3 orders of magnitude.
