Search for Extra Dimensions at the Large Hadron Collider

One of the mysteries of particle physics is the large disparity

between the electroweak and the Planck scale known as the

hierarchy problem. The idea of the existence of extra spatial

dimensions for solving this problem has fascinated physicists

for nearly a century. However, this idea has led to even more

radical speculations that extra dimensions might be macroscopic

and gravity effects would be accessible at the order of electroweak

scale instead of Planck scale in current and future collider

experiments. These recent scenarios allow for various experimental

signals induced by graviton production and exchange. I will discuss

the search sensitivity for signals of extra dimensions at the Large

Hadron Collider experiment resulting from Bremsstrahlung induced by

graviton exchange.
