The electronic structure and the transport properties of nitrogen-doped carbon nanotubes are investigated using a tight-binding model and a real-space Kubo-Greenwood approach, respectively. The transport regimes of various axial and helical doping configurations, from perfectly periodic to fully random disordered cases, are examined through the time dependence of the diffusivity. By varying the degree of disorder, a rich set of transient regimes is predicted going from persisting quasiballistic to momentarily localized regimes. A spectacular long-time ballistic regime is also observed for a specific semi-random disorder doping configuration owing to symmetry effects.
