A search is presented for microscopic black holes in a like-sign dimuon final state in proton– proton collisions at √ s = 8 TeV. The data were collected with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider in 2012 and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb−1. Using a high track multiplicity requirement, 0.6 ± 0.2 background events from Standard Model processes are predicted and none observed. This result is interpreted in the context of low-scale gravity models and 95% CL lower… Expand

Discovery and Spectroscopy of Dark Matter and Dark Sectors with Microscopic Black Holes at Next Generation Colliders.
TLDR
If the next generation of colliders can produce microscopic black holes, then missing momentum signatures can reveal the existence of any new light particle, regardless of the strength of its coupling to the standard model, even if there exists no such nongravitational coupling at all. Expand

Collider searches for nonperturbative low-scale gravity states
The possibility of producing nonperturbative low-scale gravity states in collider experiments was first discussed in about 1998. The ATLAS and CMS experiments have searched for nonperturbativeExpand
