    What happens at a perpendicular intersection of two laser beams?


    I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look around.

    What srm said.

    So to clarify, the laser beams will not affect each other from crossing. At the crossing point they will be superposed (amplitude adds up or subtracts depending on phase in each point)

    Your English is understandable. Your answer is correct. Jakato was just adding emphasis and expanding a bit.
