We compare the G and G2D bands of single-, double- and triple-wall carbon nanotubes (CNTs). We observe that the band shape is sensitive to the number of walls of the CNTs. For single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs), the G band is composed of two distinct contributions G+ and G-, while the G band for double-wall nanotubes is composed of one band with two main contributions from the inner and the outer tube. The G2D band can be fitted with one Lorentzian for single-wall tubes, while two distinct contributions are observed for double-wall carbon nanotubes (DWCNTs). Considerable variations of the G2D band are found with similar first order Raman spectra. Annealing influences the D- and RBM-band intensities. Electron irradiation has the effect of decreasing the G- and D-band wavenumbers but does not enhance the D-band intensity considerably. The down-shifts of the G- and D-band wavenumbers are correlated and are the same for two excitation wavelengths. This is consistent with the scattering of phonons around the K-point.
