     It should be calculated as follows.


timestep = 0.5 fs =  20.665 a. u.

dump_frequency = how often are you calculating the dipole moment and
dumping it to the output file. From your input file, i believe it is 1.

so sampling frequency =  20.665*1 = 20.665

Hope this helps.


PS: You need not calculate dipole moment of the system at every MD step. To
save CPU time, you can calculate dipole moment at every 5th MD step.  In
this case, the sampling frequency is 103.325 (20.665*5).
