Abstract
We report a search for effects of large extra spatial dimensions in p (p) o ver bar collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 1.8 TeV with the DO detect or, using events containing a pair of electrons or photons. The data are in good agreement with the expected background and do not exhibit evidence fo r large extra dimensions. We set the most restrictive lower limits to date, at the 95% C.L. on the effective Planck scale between 1.0 and 1.4 TeV for several formalisms and numbers of extra dimensions.
