Title: Effect of low electric fields on alpha scintillation light yield in liquid argon

Measurements were made of scintillation light yield of alpha particles from the $$^{222}$$Rn decay chain within the DarkSide-50 liquid argon time projection chamber. Furthermore, the light yield was found to increase as the applied electric field increased, with alphas in a 200 V/cm electric field exhibiting a 2% increase in light yield compared to alphas in no field.
