Description

Results of searches for Large Extra Dimensions (LED) in pp collisions at the center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV with the CMS detector are presented. Having analyzed the full 2011 dataset, we found no excess of events above the standard model (SM) expectations. We set stringent limits on the multi dimensional Planck scale as well as masses of exotic objects that are consequences of the LED.
