Experimental phonon densities of states of UO2 have been deduced from double-differential neutron scattering data measured at 300 K, 600 K and 900 K using the IN6 time-of-flight spectrometer of the Institute Laue-langevin (ILL). The comparison with ab intio phonon spectra obtained at the North Caroline South University from first-principle calculations confirms that harmonic vibrations of the atoms cannot accurately reproduce the phonon broadening related to the oxygen atoms.
