The diffusion-influenced reversible geminate-pair recombination problem is solved exactly in one
dimension, in the presence of a constant external field. As the field strength changes sign, the long
time asymptotics of the components of the Green function solution show a primary kinetic
transition, in which the equilibrium values are changed. At two other critical values of the external
field the approach to equilibrium changes, from a t 3/2
power-law to exponential. At the three
critical fields, asymptotic t 1/2
decay prevails. 2001 American Institute of Physics.
