From analysis of proton spectra associated with the d(d,p)t reaction, deuterium depth profiles in titanium during 130-keV deuteron irradiation at temperatures from 260 to 360 K were obtained as a function of the irradiation time. This nuclear reaction analysis technique (NRA) was applicable to in situ depth profiling in the region from the surface to the depth of 0.6 μm in titanium. The depth resolution varied depending on the depth; 0.07 μm at the surface and 0.15 μm at the depth between 0.2 μm and 0.6 μm. The observed depth profiles gave a clue to the dynamics of deuterium migration in titanium.
