We present a relativistic model describing a thin disk surrounded by a halo in the presence of an electromagnetic field. The model is obtained by solving the Einstein-Maxwell equations on a particular conformastatic spacetime background and by using the distributional approach for the energy-momentum tensor. A class of solutions is obtained in which the gravitational and electromagnetic potentials are completely determined by a harmonic function only. A particular solution is given that is…

It is indicated that these spacetimes can arise as the metrics of counterrotating thin disks of finite mass, consisting of two streams of collisionless particles, circulating in opposite directions with different velocities, which can act as exact sources of all types of the Kerr metric.
