How else can you explain them and what's wrong with the conventional explanation Sorin?
A strong E field will strip an electron from an atom, involving one energy jump (hundreds or thousands of eV). When the electron re combines, it will go through a number of energy changes. The optical / UV energy changes are only in the region of a very few eV. For a given element the result will be a spectral line. There will be other EM waves also emitted - but you don't see them. There is no contradiction.
