The presence of accompanying resonances to the longitudinal optical phonon satellites in the optical spectra of semiconductor quantum dots is confirmed theoretically by a non-adiabatic approach of the optical absorption. The theory is applied to simulate features of the optical spectra of small spherical GaAs/AlAs quantum dots. The intensity and the spectral position of the accompanying resonances are influenced by both optically active and dark levels and increase to measurable values with temperature.
