A microscopic theory is developed to study the optical properties of semiconductor systems with strong phonon coupling inside a cavity. The semiconductor luminescence equations are expanded to include the phonon-assisted contributions. Numerical investigations predict a considerably enhanced luminescence when the cavity resonance is shifted to coincide with the phonon sideband resonance.
