A survey of previous and newest results of the excited state absorption (ESA) measurements is presented and discussed. Author describes the measurements and interprets the ESA characteristics in case of transition metal ion-based systems. A special stress is put upon distinguishing the direct type ESA from more complex ESA schemes. Interpretations of the ESA spectra involve such phenomenon as charge redistribution via the d-dp transition, Jahn- Teller effect, existence of other centers contributing to the ESA, and thermal effects.
