For the first time the focusing effect in optical transition and diffraction radiation generated by 1.28GeV electrons in a tilted spherical target has been observed experimentally. A comparison of detected as well as simulated radiation spatial distributions produced by a flat and a spherical target has been made. It is shown that the application of such targets has allowed us to increase the radiation spectral-spatial density at the target focus without applying any additional focusing devices.
