Title: Magnetic fields and fluctuations in weakly Mn doped ZnGeP{sub 2}

We report on our measurements of local and bulk magnetic features in weakly Mn doped ZnGeP{sub 2}. Utilizing muon spin rotation and relaxation measurements, we identify local ferromagnetic order and fluctuations in the local fields as sampled by an implanted muon (μ{sup +}). We also report on field induced ferromagnetism occurring above the claimed paramagnetic to ferromagnetic transition temperature (T{sub c} = 312 K)
