The paper proposes a method for controlling the spin state of color centers based on their interaction with acoustic vibrations. An effective Hamiltonian is constructed that describes the interaction of spin 3/2 defects with lattice vibrations in the spherical approximation. It was used to calculate the spin-lattice relaxation times in a bulk crystal due to single-phonon and Raman processes. From their comparison with the experimentally measured temperature dependence of the spin relaxation rate, the constant of deformation spin-lattice interaction is determined.
