It is a work of excellent scientific quality and rigour, clarity and transversality. The work was produced by the ISTnanosat team, of the Instituto Superior Técnico, comprising João Paulo Monteiro, Alexandre Silva, Carlos Fernandes and Rui M. Rocha of IST/IT, Fabian Naf, Rúben Afonso, Gonçalo Tavares, Moisés Piedade, of IST / INESC-ID and Nuno Ramos, Tomás Almeida, João Pinto, Diogo Neves, Renato Encarnação, José Freitas, of IST. The team developed a CubeSat to perform a space mission to demonstrate ADS-B technology for tracking aircraft in remote regions of the planet. For this mission, carried out since 2017 under ESA's "Fly Your Satellite!" programme, the team chose to develop almost all subsystems from scratch through various master’s theses. Having already designed, built and integrated all the ISTSat-1 subsystems, as well as having gone through several test campaigns, the team is now aiming for the final acceptance tests and the preparation for the launch in 2020. The prize sponsored by ANACOM, in the amount of four thousand euros, was awarded at the end of the 13th Congress of the Portuguese Committee of URSI by the Vice-Chairman of ANACOM, João Miguel Coelho, and by the Chairman of the Portuguese Committee of URSI, Luísa Mendes., 01-12-2019

In this work we used a homemade Finite Difference in the Time Domain (FDTD) algorithm to characterize the propagation of electron waves in graphene. The algorithm was applied to study the dynamics of electrons in graphene superlattices, using both microscopic and effective medium approaches. In particular, it is shown that the time evolution of an electronic state and the propagation of stationary electronic states may be accurately predicted with the effective medium formalism, provided the initial state is less localized than the characteristic spatial period of the superlattice. Our results confirmed that electrons propagating in graphene superlattices with extreme anisotropy experience virtually no diffraction, 01-12-2015
