I was thinking of the following example- a circuit consist of a current source, an Ampermeter, a switch, and a semiconductor. The semiconductor can have both conduction and displacement currents since it is a dielectric conductor. At some point in time I'm switching off the circuit (infintly fast) and so the current at the outer circuit is zero. The electric field will change in time thus there will be a displacement current. To make the total current zero, the conduction current needs to cancel the displacement current. Is this description true? Thanks
