We report the experimental studies of the vibrational spectra of SrTiO3 films with the thickness of 1 μm grown by pulsed laser deposition. Fourier-transform infrared ellipsometry between 30 and 700 cm-1 and electric field-induced Raman scattering have been utilized for investigation of the phonon behavior. These results can be used for comparison with the low-frequency measurements of the static dielectric constant. In the films, the soft mode reveals hardening compared to that in bulk crystals. This observation is in agreement with the Lyddane-Sachs-Teller formalism.
