# Moving carbon nanotube in a magnetic field

When a metal wire moves across a magnetic field, voltage is induced across it, which is equal to $BLV$, where $B$ is strength of magnetic field, $L$ is the length of wire and $V$ is its velocity. Will a carbon nanotube also exhibit this phenomenon? I am asking this because carbon nanotube is although a good conductor of electricity, but probably that is because of some quantum phenomenon (bulk carbon is bad conductor of electricity).

Therefore as for any conductor, the equation emf = B.L.V is perfectly valid (the equation reflect an accumulation of charges on both ends of the wire)
