I read the attached link. It almost seems as though you

are describing a capacitor. My recollection of electronics is 40-50 Yrs old, but isn't the valence shell one where electrons can be shed and gained easily? Wouldn't the state of the atom and the number of electrons in the valence shell return to the baseline as soon as current no longer flows through the conductor. It almost sounds as though the insulator is the prime component in this description. I guess I don't fully understand this argument, but thanks for the information. Norm
