# New dimensions at a millimeter to a Fermi and superstrings at a TeV

@article{Antoniadis1998NewDA, title={New dimensions at a millimeter to a Fermi and superstrings at a TeV}, author={Ignatios Antoniadis and Nima Arkani-Hamed and Savas Dimopoulos and Georgi Dvali}, journal={Physics Letters B}, year={1998}, volume={436}, pages={257-263} }

Abstract Recently, a new framework for solving the hierarchy problem has been proposed which does not rely on low energy supersymmetry or technicolor. The gravitational and gauge interactions unite at the electroweak scale, and the observed weakness of gravity at long distances is due the existence of large new spatial dimensions. In this letter, we show that this framework can be embedded in string theory. These models have a perturbative description in the context of type I string theory. The…
