Abstract/Description: There is a hierarchy problem present in the standard model of particle physics; the force of gravity is many magnitudes weaker than the other fundamental forces. The ADD model (Arkani-Hamad, Dimopoulos, Dvali) proposes a solution to this hierarchy problem though the introduction of large extra spatial dimensions. Using 7.3 fb-1 of data from the D0 detector at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, we analyze proton-antiproton collisions at a center of mass energy of 1.96 TeV which result in one photon plus missing transverse energy, where this missing transverse energy is associated with a graviton traveling into another dimension. We set limits on the value of the fundamental Planck scale MD from 1026 GeV to 868 GeV for two to eight extra spatial dimensions. This is a work in progress, and has not been approved by the D0 collaboration.
