The process whereby a quantum mechanical system alters from one energy level to another. During this process, energy is emitted or absorbed, and it usually takes the form of photons, phonons, or kinetic energy of particles. Transitions concerned with photons alone are called direct radiative transitions, whereas those having a combination of a photon and a phonon are called indirect.
