A repetition-rate-stabilized frequency comb ranging from the violet to the mid-infrared (0.4-2.4 microm) is obtained by phase locking a femtosecond Ti:sapphire laser and a synchronously pumped optical parametric oscillator to a common supercontinuum reference. The locking results have bandwidths lower than 3 kHz. By changing the locking frequencies, different relative and absolute offsets of the constituent frequency combs are achievable.
