This paper addresses the role of Large Extra Dimensions in some flavor changing neutral current (FCNC) driven processes. In particular we have investigated radiative decays of charged leptons within models with only one universal extra dimension (UED). Loop contributions with internal fermions and scalars of comparable mass would seem to yield sizeable amplitudes, since the generic quadratic suppression factor is changed into a linear one. Such scenarios can in principle be realized in models

Yet our calculations of the Kaluza-Klein (KK) contributions to these radiative decays show this expected relative enhancement to disappear due to the near mass degeneracy of the heavy neutrinos from the different generations. In this paper we estimate also the UED contribution to the γγ → d s B , rate and find an enhancement of 3% and 6 %, respectively, over the SM prediction.
