Phonon scattering experiments at the Г8 ground state of acceptors in cubic semiconductors as Si(In), Si(B), and GaAs(Mn) show a specific resonance structure in the meV range [1], [2], which can be explained by a dynamical Jahn-Teller effect [3].However, due to the large extension of the defect wave function (5–15 Å) the influence of random internal fields is reinforced, which causes a static splitting of the Г8 state. We present a first step to a unified description of the phonon scattering processes including the influences of static fields together with the dynamical electron-phononinteraction.
