Aging, commonly observed in glasses, is a manifestation of breakdown of time-translational invariance. Here we demonstrate experimentally aging effects in the electronic system of an Anderson insulator. The aging phenomenon in the electron glass appears to be much less sensitive to temperature than in other systems. The differences in the behavior of the electron glass and a spin glass system are discussed in terms of some microscopic differences between the two systems.
