A gravitational wave window on extra dimensions


We report on the possibility of detecting a submillimetre-sized extra dimension by observing gravitational waves (GWs) emitted by pointlike objects orbiting a braneworld black hole. Matter in the ‘visible’ universe can generate a discrete spectrum of high frequency GWs with amplitudes moderately weaker than the predictions of general relativity (GR), while… (More)
