Passive Q -switched laser pulse parameters are studied. An approximate formula describing light pulse duration is presented. It is shown that the shortest pulse generated via classical passive Q -switching is determined by the damage threshold of laser active material. The ruby laser Q -switched by DDI* is analyzed quantitatively. Results are compared with the experiment.
