Abstract: he oxygen isotope effect on the soft-mode dynamics in quantum paraelectric SrTi(18O<sub>x</sub><sup>16</sup>O1-x)3 [STO18-x] is investigated by Raman scattering in terms of local symmetry breaking in the paraelectric phase. The exchange rates x of the 18O atoms are 0.23 [STO18-23] and 0.32 [STO18-32], which are less than the critical value xc(=0.33). In STO18-32, whose exchange rate is just below xc, the soft Eu mode shows hardening behavior in a low-temperature region indicating the onset of local ferroelectric order. On the other hand, the soft Eu mode in STO18-23 does not show any hardening behavior until 0 K. The enhancement of the inhomogeneity in the crystal by the exchange of 18O is concluded to play an essential role in the soft-mode dynamics of the quantum paraelectric and ferroelectric STO18-x. The relation between the soft-mode dynamics and quantum fluctuation is discussed.
