We have examined several sets of heterogeneous double wall carbon nanotubes and analysed the frequency in a wide range of values. We have found that a statistical correlation exists between the D band intensity and the RBMs intensity. All the sample sets show a correlation of the RBM and D Raman intensity which is monotonic and non-linear using the 514nm laser excitation. Our results suggest that a similar mechanism is at the origin of the RBM and D bands. These results are corroborated by observations on carbon nanotubes embedded in a polymer matrix. We derive the phonon potential deformation for the D band and extend the excitation wavelength dependence of the D band to the UV. The intensity of the D band decreases with increasing hydrostatic pressure and fanishes at a pressure comparable to what has been observed earlier for the RBM and D* band.
