Breakthrough Transmissive Gratings for Higher Sensitivity

The Renegade spectrometer utilizes Torrent’s breakthrough technology in transmissive gratings by providing higher sensitivity compared to traditional reflective grating spectrometers on the market.

The grating is made on fused silica substrates to allow for optimal UV throughput and showcases our vertical integration as all components aside from the silicone detector are made in our fabrication house at Torrent’s headquarters.

The fiber-coupled compact design and manufacturability make the Renegade a versatile OEM solution for our customers.

Renegade UV-VIS

Renegade VIS


Ideal for measurement of light in the range of 200nm to 400nm, for applications from DNA/RNA analysis, pharmaceutical, and food/beverage safety. 

Renegade VIS-1

Visible spectroscopy and colorimetry measures the absorption of light in wavelengths of 380nm to 780nm, those visible to the human eye, and provides qualitative and quantitative data without human subjectivity.
