We present a mechanical delay-free tuning concept for optical parametric oscillators (OPO) removing the main barrier for high-speed switching between arbitrary wavelengths. The concept is based on dispersive matching of the repetition frequency change occurring during wavelength tuning of the pump laser to the associated change of repetition frequency in the OPO.
