This presentation provides a brief overview of the concepts of bandstructure engineering and its potential applications to light detectors, light emitters, and electron transport devices. Critical questions of the origin of bandstructure and its dependence on local atom arrangements are raised to create awareness of the need of atomistic materials and device models at the nanometer scale.
