Titanium-plasma was obtained by nanosecond pulsed laser ablation technique. A Nd:Yag laser was employed to irradiate titanium in vacuum. The ion emission from plasma was on-line monitored by an electrostatic ion energy analyzer which permitted to measure the ion kinetic energy and charge state. The visible photon emission was monitored by an optical spectrometer. The ion energy, charge state and angular distributions, the temperature and density of the non-equilibrium plasma were investigated. The temperature gradient of the plasma plume was evaluated and discussed.
