We have studied the mangeto-photoluminescence (PL) of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with different chiral vector indices (n,m). A novel strain method is used to assign the quantum number q and chiral vector indices. The PL intensities and energies were found to be a strong function of magnetic field at low temperature, but were field independent up to 19.5T at 300K. All emission energies show a significant red shift caused by the action of Aharanov-Bohm flux threading the tubes.
