Abstract
A new conical diffraction phenomenon was observed when two beams of the same or different frequencies intersect as they pass through a CS2 cell. Light is emitted on the surface of a circular cone that is centered in each one of the two beams and has an angular extent equal to twice the crossing angle between the incident beams. The origin of this effect is discussed and a quantitative study of the conical emission intensity is given.
