vibronic transition

A transition which involves a change in both the electronic and vibrational quantum numbers of a molecular entity, as opposed to purely electronic or purely vibrational transitions. The transition occurs between two states, just as in a purely electronic transition, but involves a change in both electronic and vibrational energy.
