Carrier-envelope-phase stabilization of optical waveforms enables exquisitely precise measurements by way of direct optical-frequency synthesis, coherent optical-to-microwave phase conversion, and control of ultrafast waveforms. We report such phase stabilization for Kerr- microresonator frequency combs integrated on silicon chips, and verify their fractional- frequency inaccuracy at
