    The claim is that the staff at the LHC in CERN are looking for that.

    There is a hypothesis that some of those super-energetic proton (hadron) collisions can result in microscopic, sub-atomic scaled black holes. Those would be the smallest black holes in the universe if they actually do create them.

    I haven't seen anything in the news where such black specks in the universe have been found though. Perhaps I've missed it as I admittedly do not scan the scientific journals regularly.

      The LHC has many, many, orders of magnitude too little energy to create a black hole. Even if M-theory and and how gravitons (your favorite theory !) are speculated to behave at short distances in extra dimensions, LHC would still fall far short.

    There is no limit to the Volume of a Black Hole

    Micro or Macro

     XTE J1650. this black hole had a mass of 3.8±0.5 solar masses, which would have been the smallest found for any black hole
