In extra-dimensional models with Kaluza–Klein graviton states that are well separated in mass, such states may be observed as resonances in collider experiments. We extend previous works on such scenarios by considering the one-loop resonant production of a Z boson in association with a photon. We find the production rate to be negligible in conservative scenarios, and small for reasonable luminosity in less conservative scenarios.
