In solid-state physics, the electronic band structure of a solid describes ranges of energy that an electron is "forbidden" or "allowed" to have. It is a function of the diffraction of the quantum mechanical electron waves in the periodic crystal lattice with a specific crystal system and Bravais lattice. The band structure of a material determines several characteristics, in particular its electronic and optical properties. More information on Band structure can be found here.

Electronic band structure
09 Apr 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Gerhard Klimeck
In solid-state physics, the electronic band structure (or simply band structure) of a solid describes ranges of energy in which an electron is "forbidden" or "allowed". The band structure is also often called the dispersion or the E(k) relationship. It is a mathematical relationship between the...
Electronic Structure and Transport Properties of Graphene on Hexagonal Boron Nitride
06 Dec 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Shukai Yao, Luis Regalado Bermejo, Alejandro Strachan
Graphene is a zero-bandgap conductor with high carrier mobility. It is desired to search for an opening of band structure of graphene such that this kind of material can be applied in electronic devices. Depositing hexagonal Boron Nitride (h-BN) opens a bandgap in the band structure of...
