Various attempts to go beyond the theory of General Relativity start from the assumption that spacetime is not a 4-dimensional but rather a higher-dimensional manifold. Among others, braneworld scenarios postulate that the spacetime we effectively observe is actually a 4-dimensional brane embedded in a higher-dimensional spacetime. In general, braneworld models predict a departure from the Newton gravity law in the nonrelativistic regime. Based on this fact, we propose an experimental test that uses a pair of gravitationally interacting identical particles to determine the validity of certain braneworld models and provide numerical results that should be compared with experimental data. In particular, we consider the Randal-Sundrum braneworld model and study two cases of 5-dimensional gravity theories: the Einstein-Hilbert gravity with the negative cosmological constant and the Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet (nearly-Chern-Simons) gravity.
