We report generation of 1.35 µJ femtosecond laser pulses with a peak power of 3 MW at 1 MHz repetition rate from a diode-pumped Yb:KY(WO4)2 laser oscillator with cavity dumping. By extracavity compression with a large-mode-area fiber and a prism sequence, we generate ultrashort pulses with a duration of 21 fs and a peak power of 13 MW.
