The effect of the simultaneous generation of Cherenkov radiation and diffraction radiation in a dielectric target by electrons that pass near it has been experimentally studied. It has been shown that diffraction radiation appears at the upstream edge of the dielectric target, propagates inside the target, and is refracted at the down-stream edge as a beam of real photons.
