Substitutionally boron-doped multiwalled carbon nanotubes (B-CNTs) with lengths mainly less than 0.5μm and diameters 10-30 nm have been obtained by arc-discharge evaporation of the graphite anode containing boron material. The broad peak has been observed in the midinfrared conductivity spectra of the thin film comprising B-CNTs. The peak was suggested to be associated with a phenomenon known as localized plasmon resonance. Theoretical analysis has been done to confirm the possibility of this phenomenon to occur in the B-CNTs.
