The alpha particles get deflected by the external magnetic feild because of the repulsive force of the nucleus. Their basic properties:
1. They are highly ionising
2. Very less penetration power, can be stopped even by a paper
3. Deflected slightly in magnetic feild.
4. Alphas have more mass than other radiations -beta and gamma.
Lorentz forcce also plays an important role stating that any particle with charge q moving with velocity v in magnetic feild will experience a force and hence changes its direction.
Hope this helped.
