Paper Abstract

We study the fluorescence intermittency of individual Dil-molecules on silicon dioxide surfaces with the focus on intermittency statistics on timescales above 15 milliseconds. On these time-scales intermittency statistics is no longer dominated by triplet blinking. We show that rather broad distributions of dark states must be present which give rise to power law distributions for on- and off-times. The off- time distribution depends on excitation intensity.
