In this study we presented a theoretical investigation of the channeling of high energy protons with the radial deformed (10, 0)@(5, 0) double-wall carbon nanotubes (DWNTs). Proton energy is varied from 0.1 to 10 GeV. The channeling potential within the deformed DWNTs is presented. A Monte Carlo (MC) simulation is used to obtain spatial and angular distributions of channeled protons with radially deformed DWNTs. We treated problem relativistically. This is the first time that we presented spatial and angular distributions of channeled protons with radially deformed DWNTs. Our results show that the spatial and angular distributions depend strongly of nanotube lengths, proton energy, and especially of level of radial deformation of nanotube. Multi-wall nanotubes (MWNTs) can be technically realised with better channeling performance then single-wall nanotubes (SWNTs) and that is why we believe that these results may be useful for production and guiding of nanosized ion beams.
