Carbon nanotubes with a variety of types occupied an amazing position compared to other nanomaterials due to rarer and specific physical and chemical properties. The behavior of graphite or graphite nanotubes theoretically and experimentally encourages their use in huge applications such as industries, fields of energy, and the environment. Many attempts are being made to get more of these benefits by a better understanding of the nature of carbon nanotubes. One of the ways to achieve this aim is by enhancing the acquaintance of characterization such as spectroscopy analysis and image microscopy. In this chapter, we are concerned with using X-ray as a source to produce clear imaginations for a tubular structure. Thus, the common ways that use X-ray as a source to interact with carbon nanotubes will be reviewed with details of characterization such as XRD, XRF, XPS, and EDX techniques.
