The carbon nanowalls (CNWs) grown by Plasma-Enhanced CVD reveal differences in the magnetotransport properties depending on the synthesis parameters. In this paper, we report the influence of the deposition temperature, which produces variations of the disorder microstructure of the CNWs. Relative low disorder leads to the weak localization with the transition to weak antilocalization. Higher disorder generates positive Hopping mechanism in low field with a crossover to a diffusion transport by graphene nanocrystallites. The samples reveal a similitude of the isoline density of the MR at a low temperature (<50 K), explained in the context of the magnetization. This effect is independent of the number of defects. We can achieve a desirable amount of control over the MT properties changing the CNWs’ microstructure.
