Investigation of spectral, spatial and temporal characteristics of a monochomatic point x-ray source of photon energy approximately 5 keV has been carried out. The source was set up using a laser produced titanium or aluminum plasma as a cathode and a point-tip titanium anode. Parameters of x-ray radiation in Ti K-shells are 1) spectral brightness of approximately 1021 photons/cm2.sec.sr.keV, 2) spatial size approximately 250 microns, and 3) x-ray pulse duration less than 20 ns. It is experimentally provided that in case of appropriate choice of accelerating voltage the radiation spectrum is practically monochromatic and represented by characteristics lines of the anode's material.
