  Laser Induced Fluorescence spectrum of acetone extract of stevia has been excited with the help of a blue diode laser (415 nm, 10 mW) and recorded on a mini spectrometer. The spectrum exhibits three prominent bands at 444, 474 and 503 nm along with the well known chlorophyll bands at 685 nm and 730 nm.

Keywords: Stevia; LIF
