Description

We present examples of string compactifications with an anisotropic shape of the extra dimensions which are very promising to make contact with current experiments since they allow the existence of micron-sized extra dimensions, TeV scale strings and hidden Abelian gauge bosons with a kinetic mixing with the ordinary photon.
