Physical Review B
The growth of the spin glass correlation length has been measured as a function of the waiting time tw on a single crystal of CuMn (6 at. %), reaching values ξ∼150 nm, larger than any other glassy correlation length measured to date. We find an aging rate dlntw/dlnξ larger than found in previous measurements, which evinces a dynamic slowing down as ξ grows. Our measured aging rate is compared with simulation results by the Janus Collaboration. After critical effects are taken into account, we find excellent agreement with the Janus data.
