Title: Bulk black hole, escaping photons, and bounds on violations of Lorentz invariance

Abstract

There are reasons (which we enumerate) to think that an infinite extra dimension will harbor a black hole. In this case, brane-localized modes of gravity and gauge fields become quasilocalized, and light from a distant object can become extinct as it is lost to the black hole. In a concrete scenario, where the photon is localized by gravity, we find that the extinction rate for propagating photons is at least comparable to the correction to the real part of the frequency. That results, for example, in a stringent bound on renormalization of the speed of light.
