For single-photon generation based on cavity quantum electrodynamics, we investigate a practical model assuming a Gaussian wave packet. This model makes it possible to comprehensively analyze the temporal dynamics of an atom-cavity system with both adiabatic and nonadiabatic conditions using analytical expressions. These results enable us to clarify the relationship between pulse width and maximum success probability over the full range of coupling regimes. We demonstrate how to achieve a high success probability while keeping a short pulse width by optimizing the cavity transmittance parameter and the time-controlled external field. Our formulations provide a practical tool for efficient single-photon generation in a wide variety of experimental platforms.
