dc.description.abstractAn evaporating black hole in the presence of an extra spatial dimension would undergo an explosive phase of evaporation. We show that such an event, involving a primordial black hole, can produce a detectable, distinguishable electromagnetic pulse, signaling the existence of an extra dimension of size L ∼ 10<sup>−18</sup> − 10<sup>−20</sup> m. We derive a generic relationship between the Lorentz factor of a pulse-producing “fireball” and the TeV energy scale. For an ordinary toroidally compactified extra dimension, transient radio-pulse searches probe the electroweak energy scale (∼0.1 TeV), enabling comparison with the Large Hadron Collider.en
