Bibliometric data on the growth dynamics of papers devoted to the Czochralski method of crystal growth and citations to these papers published in the scientific literature are analyzed using mathematical functions based on progressive nucleation mechanism and power-law approaches. It is shown that the basic concepts of progressive nucleation mechanism originally developed for crystal growth can satisfactorily be applied to explain the citation behavior of papers published on the Czochralski method of crystal growth. It is also found that: (1) cumulative number N(t) of papers and cumulative number L(t) of citations to them at time t are mutually related, and (2) as determined by the plot of the parameter L(t)/t^2 against the number Δ N(t) of papers published per year, the citation behavior of papers published on the Czochralski method follows three distinct periods: 1954-1988, 1988-2001 and 2001-2012, which are related to the dependence of the number Δ N(t) of papers published per year on publication time t.
