The anisotropic two‐dimensional (2D) electron diffraction pattern of jet‐cooled CS2 in an intense nanosecond Nd:YAG laser field (1064 nm, ∼0.64 TW/cm2, 10 ns) was measured by a short‐pulsed 25 keV electron beam packet (∼7 ns) generated by irradiating a tantalum photocathode with the 4th harmonics of another nanosecond pulsed YAG laser light. It was confirmed from the numerical simulation of the observed anisotropic diffraction image that the alignment of the S‐C‐S molecular axis proceeds in the intense laser field along the laser polarization direction.
