Abstract: Newtonian inverse square law is widely believed to be hold from astronomical to microscopic scale, however, precision experimental tests are very limited around planetary scale. After the proposal of the large extra-dimension (ADD) model, numbers of table-top experiments together with high energy collider experiment are performed, in order to search a possible deviation from the inverse square law at below millimeter scale. The speaker is a high energy nuclear physicist, who inspired by the ADD model, which can be experimentally tested using a position monitoring technique invented to a high energy collider experiment of the PHENIX experiment at RHIC. In this presentation, experimental overview and project status will be presented.
