We construct different types of atomic clocks to generate optical frequencies that have demonstrated a fractional instability approaching 1 part in 1018 and an absolute fractional frequency uncertainty below 10-17. We develop laser frequency combs to connect stable optical frequencies to each other and to microwave sources with an imprecision below 1 part in 1019. These state-of-the-art frequency combs are also developed for other important applications, including ultra-low noise microwave generation, chip-scale sensors, mid-IR molecular spectroscopy, optical waveform generation,and calibration of astronomical spectrographs for searches for exo-planets.
