We study highly excited diskoid-like electronic states formed in the vicinity of charged and strongly polarizable diskotic nanostructures, such as circular graphene flakes. First, we study the nature of such extended states in a simple two-electron model. The two electrons are attached to a point-like nucleus with a charge 2+, where the material electron is forced to move within a 2D disk area centered at the nucleus, while the extended electron is free to move in 3D. Pronounced and complex correlations are revealed in the diskoid-like states. We also develop semiclassical one-electron models of such diskotic systems and explain how the one-electron and many-electron solutions are related.
