Dear all,

I am calculating the infrared spectra of gypsum supercell (2*1*2) with the 
dimension of 13*15*11 A at gamma point. My question is if gamma point is 
enough to calculate the accurate infrared spectra. In addition, why are the 
frequencies of calculated spectra always lower than those of experimental 

Any help is very appriciated.
