We have investigated magnetic aging and memory effects in the magnetically ordered phase of 32Fe2O3·48Bi2O3·20B2O3 (mol%) glass, which exhibits a spin glass-like transition at about 15 K (Tsg) and a superparamagnetic blocking at about 28 K (Tsp). The present glass manifests magnetic aging effects similar to those observed in spin glasses in the temperature regimes of not only T<Tsg but also Tsg<T<Tsp, indicating that superparamagnetic clusters existing in the glass strongly interact with each other. The interactions among the magnetic clusters lead to cooperative spin dynamics as observed in superspin glasses.
