Discharge and laser parameters in mixtures of SF6 with H2 and D2 are studied using inductive and LC-generators. Excitation pulse parameters providing ultimate performance of discharge non-chain HF- and DF-lasers are determined. Processes affecting efficiency of the lasers are discussed. Ultimate intrinsic efficiency ηint of the HF and DF lasers up to 10% and 7%, respectively, was realized in the SF6-H2 (D2) mixtures. Electrical efficiency of the lasers up to η0 = 5-6% with the output over 1 J was demonstrated for the first time.
