We present first-principles calculations of the structural and lattice-dynamical properties for cubic bismuth III-V compounds: BBi, AlBi and GaBi. The ground-state properties, i.e., the lattice constant and the bulk modulus, are calculated using a plane wave pseudopotential method within density functional theory. A linear-response approach to density functional theory is used to derive the phonon frequencies. The effect of pressure on the dynamical charges and the longitudinal optical-transverse optical splitting is also examined.
