# Analytical frequencies with subsequent calculation of vibrational circular
# dichroism (VCD)

# Recommended is use to use high accuracy for the geometry optimization which
# one needs to do before the frequency calculation. This simple example is an
# NHDT molecule, which is NH3 where one hydrogen atom is replaced with deuterium
# and another with tritium.
