# Does the conductivity of a metal = how well it can function in a generator?

One way to increase the efficiency of a generator is to increase the strength of the magnets applying a force perpendicular to the wire. But what about the other way? Instead of making the magnets stronger, what kinds of metals are more sensitive to magnetic force? And what is this property called? Is the ability for a metal to be able to generate a current through it's susceptibility to magnetic fields different than its conductivity? Or can I just assume silver is the best metal for this whole process? Is there anything more conductive than silver, besides like graphene maybe? Also how do you explain this property? Silver has more/less...force holding metallic bonds together, allowing electrons to move more easily?

This resistance per unit length with unit cross sectional area of wire is called the resistivity of the material,$\rho$. Also: $$\rho=\frac{RA}{l}$$
