The dynamic structure factor of the three-dimensional quantum harmonic oscillator has been known exactly as a function of momentum transfer , energy transfer and temperature T for a very long time. One aspect of the exact solution has not been explicitly discussed so far: for large Q the maximum in is located at a frequency , which is persistently lower than the commonly expected recoil frequency even for and increasingly so for lower T. We present a new consistent zeroth-order estimate for the frequency shifts (with respect to ) as found in actual (neutron) scattering experiments on condensed matter at large Q.
