Can someone explain the electron transition from HOMO to LOMO!

HOMO and LOMO refers to the electron configuration of excited atoms. The electron is excited by a photon and one of the valence electrons transitions from the highest occupied molecular orbital to the lowest unoccupied orbital. So if an electron is in the sigma star molecular orbital, and the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital is the pi Px, then the electron will move from the sigma star into the pi Px.
