We review the most striking experimental results on aging in a variety of disordered systems, which reveal similar features but also important differences. We argue that a generic model that reproduce many of these features is that of {\it pinned defects} in a disordered environment, hopping between different metastable states. The fact that energy barriers grow with the size of the reconforming regions immediately leads to a strong hierarchy of time scales. In particular, long wavelength… CONTINUE READING
