The low temperature magnetoresistance (MR) has been studied in a nitrogen doped multi-walled carbon nanotube (CNxMWNT) with a four terminal resistance measurement. The phase coherent properties of electron transport in the CNxMWNT have been deduced from results of quantum-transport analysis. A zero-field peak of the weak localization can be observed in the low-temperature MR, however, there exhibits a clear boundary between the phase braking processes around 10 K. The phase coherence has been analyzed and the quasi-one-dimensional properties have been discussed in weakly localized metallic transport with a low temperature MR in terms of quantum interference.
