We are developing laser frequency measurement technologies that should allow us to construct an optical frequency synthesis system capable of measuring optical frequencies with a precision limited by the atomic frequency standards. The system will be used to interconnect and compare new advanced optical-frequency references (such as Ca, Hg+ and others) and eventually to connect these references to the Cs primary frequency standard. The approach we are taking is to subdivide optical frequency intervals into smaller and smaller pieces until we are able to use standard electronic-frequency-measurement technology to measure the smallest interval
