In order to generate a stable high-quality electron beam, optical injection by collision of two laser pulses is proposed. We succeeded a monoenergetic 134 MeV electron beam generation by the optical injection in a head-on laser pulses configuration. The experiments were carried out by the perfect head-on collision, which has problems to the backward laser light toward the laser system and the extraction of the generated electron beam. The counter-crossing injection, which is a realistic setup for applications, by two sub-relativistic laser pulses collision with the colliding angle of 45 $$^{circ}$$ is demonstrated. The collision of two laser pulses generates a high-quality electron beam with high repeatability. The generated monoenergetic electron beam has 14.4 MeV of the peak energy, 10.6% of the energy spread, 21.8 pC of the charge, 1.6 $$pi$$ mm mrad of the normalized emittance, and 47.4% of the repeatability.
