An object that absorbs some amount of energy, and then later emits that energy in the form of radiative energy is referred to as reradiating the absorbed energy.
Additional recommended knowledge
The term is most often used in discussion of absorption of light or infrared radiation. In the normal process of thermal absorption and emission, the reradiated energy is emitted at a longer wavelength (i.e., lower energy).
