Dear GuilhermeIs one of the frequencies too small ? If so please double the number of displacements in each direction to see whether the smaller frequency disappears or not. You can apply it using $FORCE NVIB=2 $END. Then please let us know whether it improves the results. If the issue doesn't fit the proposed solution please let us see the output file.

Sincerely Yours, m
