The statistics of single molecule blinking events often reveal underlying quantum mechanisms. The golden rule rate expression for quantum transitions is shown to be the inverse of the mean waiting time. The distribution function for the waiting time is related to the density of states such that simple power-law distribution functions can be predicted based… (More)
