We review our recent optical experiments on single-walled carbon nanotubes in high magnetic fields. The data revealed magnetic-field-induced optical anisotropy as well as broadening, splittings, and shifts of interband absorption and photoluminescence peaks. Quantitative comparison with theoretical predictions based on the Aharonov-Bohm effect is presented.
