We have measured the temperature dependence of the homogeneous width of spectral holes in the incommensurate phase III of chlorin-doped biphenyl from 60 mK to 10 K. Below 2 K a power law (, for different spectral peaks) prevails. Above 2 K a strong coupling to low-energy (5 and ) vibrational modes dominates. No indication of a low-temperature lock-in transition was found.
