    We studied THz dielectric spectra of SrTiO3/DyScO3 epitaxial multilayers with four 50-nm-thick layers of each compound deposited on DyScO3 substrate as a function of temperature and electric field. At room temperature, SrTiO3 is in the paraelectric phase and the soft-mode frequency is shifted down to 47 cm-1. The ferroelectric phase transition occurs in the strained SrTiO3 layers around 270 K and in the ferroelectric phase the soft-mode hardening upon temperature decrease is observed. The soft mode is linearly coupled to an excitation of relaxation type at 10 cm-1 at all temperatures. This relaxation is silent in the paraelectric phase, but it becomes coupled to the polarization below the ferroelectric transition temperature. The recently proposed universal model of soft-mode behavior in strained SrTiO3 films [C. Kadlec et al., J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 21, 115902 (2009)] was generalized to describe the observed spectra at all temperatures and applied fields.
