Growth Phase

In an industry life cycle, an early phase marked by an end to technological innovation and the attempt by different companies in the industry to gain larger market shares. That is, even if two competing companies make exactly the same product, they will use marketing, pricing, and other methods to become a leader in that product's market.

Our present data of frost thickness and density resulted similar to those in the literature during the frost growth phase. However, we were not able to find data from the literature for the very first few minutes of frost accretion, that is, during the frost nucleation and crystal growth phases, and for the type of surface coatings used in the present work.
(1985) presented a frost model, composed of droplet growth and frost layer growth phases, in which they calculated droplet growth and freezing and built a homogeneous frost layer on top of the frozen droplets.
Two growth phases were defined as restricted (spawning to tagging-genetic restriction factor, in this process, except for genetic background for every individual, the whole individuals within family were reared in the same condition.
Studies of the effects of nitrogen sources on the chemical composition in different growth phases may give important information on species metabolism (Fidalgo et al., 1995).
coli AB1157 (wild-type) and AB1886 (uvrA-deficient) in the stationary and exponential growth phases were exposed to a low-level red laser (8 J/[cm.sup.2]) and UVC radiation (25, 50, and 100 mJ/[cm.sup.2]).
Senior economist at Markit, Rob Dobson, commented "A strong domestic market is meanwhile being supplemented by one of the best growth phases for new export orders in the survey history.
lactis M4 dairy strain at mid-exponential and early stationary growth phases were determined and the physiological changes between the growth phases were elucidated using highly sensitive and specific ultra-performance liquid chromatography nanoflow electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-nanoESI-MS/MS).
If we are right and the second growth phase is now starting to develop within this wave (growth phases in a zigzag are mostly equal), then the target of wave B might be expected at 1730 points (maybe higher).
Previous studies on the effects of nZVI on bacteria were based mainly on cells from stationary growth phase. Since bacterial cells in different growth phases have different physiological characteristics, they may exhibit different responses to nZVI.
Santo said there are three growth phases for each hair folicle--the anagen phase, the active growth phase in which cells form the hair shaft; the catagen phase, in which the hair stops its growth cycle but doesn't fall out; and the telogen phase, in which the hair falls out to be replaced by new hairs.
Many are in growth phases again and this is most encouraging as it translates directly in increased leasing and purchases.
