Zeeman spectroscopy provides information about the symmetry and the charge state of a defect. The Zeeman splitting of the initial and final state can be described by a most general effective Hamiltonian. A dynamical Jahn-Teller effect in one of the states leads to an extremely weak effective spin-orbit coupling. The resulting complicated energy level scheme can be successfully analyzed in the high magnetic field limit.This is demonstrated in the case of the 0.84-eV no-phonon structure in GaAs:Cr and the 0.786-eV no-phonon line in InP:Co.
