Evidence for static alternating magnetic fields in the vortex cores of underdoped [Formula presented] is reported. Muon spin rotation measurements of the internal magnetic field distribution of the vortex state of [Formula presented] in applied fields of [Formula presented] and [Formula presented] reveal a feature in the high-field tail of the field distribution which is not present in optimally doped [Formula presented] and which fits well to a model with static magnetic fields in the vortex cores. The magnitude of the fields is estimated to be 18(2) G and decreases above [Formula presented]. We discuss possible origins of the additional vortex core magnetism within the context of existing theories.
