    Frenkel defect formation in the oxygen sublattice and the excitation of electronic defects in the form of small polarons are considered. A brief summary is given of the results of a recent investigation into possible oxygen lattice disorder in UO//2 and ThO//2 at temperatures up to 2930 K, using neutron scattering techniques.
