Description

With a substantial increase in luminosity at the LHC, 2011 is an exciting time for searches for new physics. The Randall-Sundrum model, in which a warped extra dimension is introduced to resolve the hierarchy problem, predicts a spectrum of massive excited gravitons. There is significant potential for discovery of the lightest of these gravitons. The latest results from the ATLAS Collaboration for RS gravitons decaying to diphoton and dielectron final states will be presented.
