We report on a diode-pumped tunable Yb:glass femtosecond laser oscillator with electro-optic cavity dumping. Pulses with energies exceeding 400 nJ and peak powers greater than 1 MW were generated at repetition frequencies as high as 200 kHz. This laser forms a compact light source for various scientific and industrial applications such as micromachining.
