Semiconductors is said to be energy bands where they are many quantum states the electrons can have. What other materials have energy bands.

How does quantum superpositions in the energy bands work? It is said that it is very difficult to maintain superposition because of decoherence.. what is the energy band connection to this.. doesn't it decohere?
