New scientific insight and technological developments of the past few years have stimulated renewed enthusiasm for the development of optical frequency standards. Long-standing problems have now been eliminated, and it appears that frequency standards using stable lasers and optical transitions may someday replace modern atomic clocks that are based on microwave transitions.
