An investigation was made into the characteristics of XeCl (λ ∼ 308 nm), KrCl (λ ∼ 222 nm) and XeI (λ ∼ 253 nm) capacitive HF discharge and glow discharge excilamps. High fluorescence efficiency of the exciplex molecules has been obtained from excilamps with simple design under capacitive HF discharge excitation. A fluorescence efficiency with respect to the electrical power deposition of up to ∼ 12% has been measured. The study of XeCl, KrCl and XeI excilamps has shown that it is possible to create sealed-off excilamps with gas mixture lifetimes of over 1000 hours.
