We demonstrate manipulation of the ultrafast electron detachment and recombination dynamics using femtosecond pump-repump-probe spectroscopy. The repump-induced kinetics provide convincing evidence for formation of a bromide-electron pair with bonding energy of 0.15±0.02 eV and effective lifetime of 19±2 ps at room temperature.
