internal conversion
A photophysical process. An isoenenergetic @R05057@ between two electronic states of the same multiplicity. When the transition results in a vibrationally excited molecular entity in the lower @ET07026@, this usually undergoes @D01528@ to its lowest vibrational level, provided the final state is not @U06569@ to @D01801@.
