The drive laser system of the photoelectric injector for the Los Alamos free-electron laser (FEL) is described. This system consists of a 1.053 μm mode-locked Nd:YLF oscillator, a grating-rhomb pulse compressor, a fast electrooptic shutter to reduce pulse repetition frequency, a pulsed Nd:YLF amplifier chain, and a KTP frequency doubler. The bright electron beams required for high performance FELs demand stringent specifications on drive laser output levels, beam quality, and stability. The design specifications, laser architecture, and operating performance following the most recent round of upgrades are presented
