The fine structure and temperature evolution of infrared spectra have been intensively used to probe the nature of Jahn-Teller dynamics in correlated materials. At the same time, a theoretical framework to adequately extract the information on the complicated vibronic dynamics from infrared spectra is still lacking. In this work, the first-principles theory of the infrared spectra of dynamical Jahn-Teller system is developed and applied to the Mott-insulating Cs3C60. With the calculated coupling parameters for Jahn-Teller and infrared active vibrational modes, the manifestation of the dynamical Jahn-Teller effect in infrared spectra is elucidated. In particular, the temperature evolution of the infrared line shape is explained. The transformation of the latter into Fano resonance type in metallic fulleride is discussed on the basis of obtained results.
