Limits on $\boldsymbol R$ from Deviations in Gravitational Force Law INSPIRE search

This section includes limits on the size of extra dimensions from deviations in the Newtonian (1/$\mathit r{}^{2}$) gravitational force law at short distances. Deviations are parametrized by a gravitational potential of the form $\mathit V~=~−(\mathit G$ $\mathit m$ $\mathit m'/\mathit r$) [1 $+$ $\alpha $ exp($−\mathit r/R$)]. For $\delta $ toroidal extra dimensions of equal size, $\alpha $ = 8$\delta $/3. Quoted bounds are for $\delta $ = 2 unless otherwise noted.

1  KAPNER 2007 search for new forces, probing a range of $\alpha $ $≅$ $10^{-3} - 10^{5}$ and length scales $\mathit R$ $≅$ $10 - 1000$ $\mu $m. For $\delta $ = 1 the bound on $\mathit R$ is 44 $\mu $m. For $\delta $ = 2, the bound is expressed in terms of ${{\mathit M}_{{*}}}$, here translated to a bound on the radius. See their Fig. 6 for details on the bound.
2  KLIMCHITSKAYA 2017A uses an experiment that measures the difference of Casimir forces to obtain bounds on non-Newtonian forces with strengths $\vert \alpha \vert $ $≅$ $10^{5} - 10^{17}$ and length scales $\mathit R$ = $0.03 - 10$ $\mu $m. See their Fig. 3. These constraints do not place limits on the size of extra flat dimensions.
3  XU 2013 obtain constraints on non-Newtonian forces with strengths $\vert \alpha \vert $ $≅$ $10^{34} - 10^{36}$ and length scales $\mathit R$ $≅$ $1 - 10$ fm. See their Fig. 4 for more details. These constraints do not place limits on the size of extra flat dimensions.
4  BEZERRA 2011 obtain constraints on non-Newtonian forces with strengths $10^{11}{ {}\lesssim{} }$ $\vert {{\mathit \alpha}}\vert { {}\lesssim{} }$ $10^{18}$ and length scales $\mathit R$ = $30 - 1260$ nm. See their Fig. 2 for more details. These constraints do not place limits on the size of extra flat dimensions.
5  SUSHKOV 2011 obtain improved limits on non-Newtonian forces with strengths $10^{7}{ {}\lesssim{} }$ $\vert {{\mathit \alpha}}\vert $ ${ {}\lesssim{} }$ $10^{11}$ and length scales 0.4 ${{\mathit \mu}}$m $<$ ${{\mathit R}}$ $<$ 4 ${{\mathit \mu}}$m (95$\%$ CL). See their Fig. 2. These bounds do not place limits on the size of extra flat dimensions. However, a model dependent bound of ${{\mathit M}_{{*}}}$ $>$ 70 TeV is obtained assuming gauge bosons that couple to baryon number also propagate in (4 + ${{\mathit \delta}}$) dimensions.
6  BEZERRA 2010 obtain improved constraints on non-Newtonian forces with strengths $10^{19}{ {}\lesssim{} }$ $\vert \alpha \vert { {}\lesssim{} }$ $10^{29}$ and length scales $\mathit R$ = $1.6 - 14$ nm (95$\%$ CL). See their Fig.$~$1. This bound does not place limits on the size of extra flat dimensions.
7  MASUDA 2009 obtain improved constraints on non-Newtonian forces with strengths $10^{9}{ {}\lesssim{} }\vert \alpha \vert { {}\lesssim{} }10^{11}$ and length scales $\mathit R$ = $1.0 - 2.9$ $\mu $m (95$\%$ CL). See their Fig.$~$3. This bound does not place limits on the size of extra flat dimensions.
8  GERACI 2008 obtain improved constraints on non-Newtonian forces with strengths $\vert \alpha \vert $ $>$ 14,000 and length scales $\mathit R$ = $5 - 15$ $\mu {\mathrm {m}}$. See their Fig. 9. This bound does not place limits on the size of extra flat dimensions.
9  TRENKEL 2008 uses two independent measurements of Newton's constant $\mathit G$ to constrain new forces with strength $\vert \alpha \vert ≅10^{-4}$ and length scales $\mathit R$ = $0.02 - 1$ m. See their Fig. 1. This bound does not place limits on the size of extra flat dimensions.
10  DECCA 2007A search for new forces and obtain bounds in the region with strengths $\vert \alpha \vert $ $≅$ $10^{13} - 10^{18}$ and length scales $\mathit R$ = $20 - 86$ nm. See their Fig. 6. This bound does not place limits on the size of extra flat dimensions.
11  TU 2007 search for new forces probing a range of $\vert \alpha \vert $ $≅$ and length scales $\mathit R$ $≅$ $20 - 1000$ $\mu $m. For $\delta $ = 1 the bound on $\mathit R$ is 53 $\mu $m. See their Fig. 3 for details on the bound.
12  SMULLIN 2005 search for new forces, and obtain bounds in the region with strengths $\alpha $ $\simeq{}$ $10^{3} - 10^{8}$ and length scales ${{\mathit R}}$ = $6 - 20$ ${{\mathit \mu}}$m. See their Figs.$~$1 and 16 for details on the bound. This work does not place limits on the size of extra flat dimensions.
13  HOYLE 2004 search for new forces, probing $\alpha $ down to and distances down to 10$\mu $m. Quoted bound on $\mathit R$ is for $\delta $ = 2. For $\delta $ = 1, bound goes to 160 $\mu $m. See their Fig. 34 for details on the bound.
14  CHIAVERINI 2003 search for new forces, probing $\alpha $ above $10^{4}$ and $\lambda $ down to 3$\mu $m, finding no signal. See their Fig.$~$4 for details on the bound. This bound does not place limits on the size of extra flat dimensions.
15  LONG 2003 search for new forces, probing $\alpha $ down to 3, and distances down to about 10$\mu $m. See their Fig.$~$4 for details on the bound.
16  HOYLE 2001 search for new forces, probing $\alpha $ down to and distances down to 20$\mu $m. See their Fig.$~$4 for details on the bound. The quoted bound is for $\alpha $ ${}\geq{}$ 3.
17  HOSKINS 1985 search for new forces, probing distances down to 4$~$mm. See their Fig.$~$13 for details on the bound. This bound does not place limits on the size of extra flat dimensions.
