electronic energy migration (or hopping)
The movement of electronic excitation energy from one molecular entity to another of the same species, or from one part of a molecular entity to another of the same kind (e.g. excitation migration between the chromophores of an aromatic polymer). The migration can happen via radiative or radiationless processes.
