We have employed electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy and magnetization measurements in order to study the effect of Al-incorporation on the magnetic interactions in ZnO:Mn diluted magnetic semiconductors. Al-doping is shown to decrease the antiferromagnetic correlation and to increase the ferromagnetic interaction, which is attributed to the hydrogen-mediated ferromagnetic Mn complexes in our Mn-doped ZnO samples.
