We investigate the light-matter interaction of a quantum dot with the electromagnetic field in a lossy microcavity and calculate emission spectra for nonzero detuning and dephasing. It is found that dephasing shifts the intensity of the emission peaks for nonzero detuning. We investigate the characteristics of this intensity shifting effect and offer it as an explanation for the nonvanishing emission peaks at the cavity frequency found in recent experimental work.
