From the Professional Divisions Manual:
   The division was organized to promote the
   advancement of knowledge of the use of particle
   accelerator technologies for nuclear and other
   applications. It focuses on production of neutrons
   and other particles, utilization of these particles for
   scientific or industrial purposes, such as the
   production or destruction of radionuclides significant
   to energy, medicine, defense or other endeavors, as
   well as imaging and diagnostics.
