Thesis in 2016

thesis 2016

'Safe handling of nanotechnology' ten years on

In 2006, a group of scientists proposed five grand challenges to support the safe handling of nanotechnology. Ten years on, Andrew Maynard and Robert Aitken — two of the original authors — look at where we have come, and where we still need to go.

  • Andrew D. Maynard
  • Robert J. Aitken

The long way to the market

Nanotechnology is starting to play a role in a number of commercial products, though in an evolutionary, rather than revolutionary way, says Peter Dobson .

  • Peter Dobson

Anniversary thoughts

Chris Toumey reflects on his contribution to Nature Nanotechnology since its launch.

  • Chris Toumey

Is nanotech failing casual learners?

How easy is it for people to learn about nanotechnology through the Internet? Andrew D. Maynard looks at some of the challenges and opportunities.

Environment matters for all

Nanotechnology-induced risks to the environment are of greater concern than envisaged, although different groups of people are concerned for different reasons, as Chris Toumey explains.

Are we ready for spray-on carbon nanotubes?

As artists and manufacturers explore the use of spray-on carbon nanotube coatings, Andrew D. Maynard explores the state of the science around nanotube safety.

The philosopher and the engineer

There is no unique definition of nanotechnology because its breadth and complexity mean that people with different backgrounds and interests have their own view of the subject, explains Chris Toumey .

Navigating the risk landscape

The potential risks surrounding nanotechnology can often appear complex and confusing. But with some basic guideposts, argues Andrew D. Maynard , navigating them can become a little easier.

Towards a new scale

Work on a new technology roadmap and an exceptional wave of consolidation hint at fundamental changes in the micro- and nanoelectronics industry, as Christian Martin explains.

  • Christian Martin

Less is Moore

Predictions for the development of microelectronics provide a valuable example about the virtues of measured promises in nanotechnology, as Chris Toumey explains.

Writing Your Thesis in Word 2016 and newer (Mac)

Below are instructions for performing the most common thesis formatting tasks in Word 2016. Make sure you are using the  Word thesis template !  Please see our  general Word thesis instructions  which is helpful no matter what version of Word you're using.

  • How to view/apply styles  (Video Guide)
  • How to modify styles
  • Fixing broken section breaks  (Video Guide)
  • How to make the first page of your Introduction start on page one  (Video Guide)
  • How to suppress page numbers
  • How to set continuous pagination
  • How to insert a page number
  • Inserting images  (Video Guide)
  • Updating Tables  (Video Guide)

"Styles" are used in Word to easily apply a set of formatting attributes--such as font, font size, indentation, and spacing--consistently throughout a document. Learn more on our  Word thesis page .

How to view and apply styles

style toolbox

  • You'll see the styles pane open on the right side of the window.

select text

  • To apply a particular style, select the text in the document (most styles are applied to an entire paragraph) and click the corresponding style in the Styles Toolbox.
  • Occasionally the style won't be applied correctly. When this happens, choose "Clear Formatting", then apply the style again.

Modifying Styles

If you don't like a particular style, modify it to meet your needs!

  • Click the drop down arrow next to the style of choice in the toolbox.
  • Choose  Modify Style...
  • Change the parameters you want.  More options are available from the Format drop-down box.
  • Click OK when you're done and apply your changes.

Section Breaks

  • Click the Show/Hide ¶ button to see what section breaks you already have.
  • Go to the Insert menu > Break .

Odd section break

If your chapter is not starting where you are expecting, for instance chapter 1 ends on page 9 but chapter 2 starts on page 13, you might have extra section breaks that you cannot see. To delete these, see the video below:

  • Only use one section break at a time. Multiple consecutive breaks create erroneous blank pages.
  • If you need to force something to the following page (like an image), insert a regular page break (Insert menu > Break > Page Break)

Fixing broken section breaks

If you insert a section break and it messes up the previous section break, fix it this way:

  • Format menu > Document > Layout tab.
  • Select "Section start: Odd page"
  • Check "Different odd and even" and "Different first page" 
  • Apply to: "Whole document"

The thesis template is set with correct pagination but it will probably break as you use it.  Follow these guidelines for fixing it.  Because it can be tricky, stop by the Help Desk if you get stuck.

How to make the first page of your introduction page one

The first page of your introduction should begin on page 1.


  • In the menu above, Go to the Insert menu > Page Numbers. 
  • Click the Format button on the lower left.

page # format

How to suppress page numbers on the first page of chapters

The first page of each chapter should not have a printed page number (but will count in the pagination).

  • Make sure the correct section break is inserted at the end of the previous chapter (e.g., Odd section for double-sided format).  See instructions above.
  • Double-click in the header area at the top of the page.
  • If the page number still appears, select it and delete it. Then check the rest of the pagination to make sure it didn't break something else.

How to set continuous pagination (e.g., fix restarting at "1")

Page 1 starts on the first page of the first chapter (usually Introduction).  Sometimes, numbering will restart in later parts in your document.

  • Go to the page where numbering is incorrectly restarting at 1.
  • Go to the Insert menu > Page Numbers. 

Continuous pagination

How to insert page numbers

Occasionally it may be necessary to insert a page number where one has disappeared.

  • Go to the page and double-click in the header area at the top of the page.
  • Click the Header and Footer tab.

Insert page number

  • Align the page number accordingly (right-justified for an odd page; left-justified for an even page)

Inserting Images

  • Place your cursor where the image should be inserted (make sure it's in a new paragraph)
  • Put the paragraph in the "Figure,fig" style ( see how to apply styles above )
  • Go to the Insert menu > Pictures > Picture from File... 
  • Select the file stored on your computer.

To change what levels appear in your table of contents, you will first have to delete the old one and then insert a new one. The video below shows you how to do this.

If you need to update any of your tables or list, like the table of contents or list of figures, you need to right click them and click "update field" and choose "update entire field." The video below shows how to this.

  2. PDF Design of the RISC-V Instruction Set Architecture

    In this dissertation, I present the RISC-V instruction set architecture. RISC-V is a free and open ISA that, with three decades of hindsight, builds and improves upon the original Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC) architectures.
