    The supersymmetric "shining" of free massive chiral superficiels in extra dimensions from a distant source brane can trigger exponentially small supersymmetry breaking on our brane of order e~27rR, where R is the radius of the extra dimensions. This supersymmetry breaking can be transmitted to the superpartners in a number of ways, for instance by gravity or via the standard model gauge interactions. The radius R can easily be stabilized at a size 0(10) larger that the fundamental scale. The models are extremely simple, relying only on free, classical bulk dynamics to solve the hierarchy problem. ©2001 The American Physical Society.
