    We have developed an optical single-frequency synthesizer for telecommunications wavelengths. The synthesizer is based on a conventional Ti:S frequency comb generator and generates a single user-specified frequency within the 192-196 THz gain bandwidth of the erbium-doped fiber amplifier from an atomic time base. The synthesized frequency can be directly used, e.g., for spectroscopy, high precision characterization of optical components, or as a reference in calibration of acetylene-stabilized lasers.
