An oscillator is an electronic or mechanical device that produces regular oscillations in the form of electrical or mechanical energy. Modern-day computers, clocks, metal detectors, watches and micro controllers all utilize oscillators. An atomic clock operates on atomic oscillations, and thus is said to be the most precise chronometer in the world. An oscillator works on the frequency that is determined by quartz crystal.
