We briefly review phenomenological properties of the intermittency behavior of blinking nanocrystals (i.e., quantum dots). Special emphasis is given to the properties of intensity correlation function that exhibit behaviors mentioned in the title. We discuss models which can be used to explain the strange kinetics of the blinking nanocrystals.
