How did you initialize velocities? The thermostat does not control
Also, it's very hard to hold most systems at such low temperature -
normal dynamics should repartition potential energy into kinetic energy
I stopped heating from temperatures below 250 K or so a long time ago
because the system would often naturally heat up faster than my
increment (it's hard to say if your choice of 100 steps will overcome
this). I generally only use these kinds of protocols for annealing up to
600 K or so and then ramping down the temperature afterward.
