Progress in semiconductor technology introduces a new platform for quantum optics studies in
solid state: a quantum dot strongly coupled to a cavity mode. We present an exactly solvable model
for the combined electron, photon and phonon dynamics. For a cavity mode prepared in a Fock
state, the model reproduces the Jaynes-Cumming solution and interaction with a phonon bath leads
higher g(2)
(0). In contrast, for an initial thermal photon distribution, the phonon bath interaction
