SLAC E158 is an experiment to measure the parity non-conserving asymmetry in Moller scattering. Longitudinally polarized 48 GeV electrons are scattered off unpolarized (atomic) electrons in a liquid hydrogen target with an average Q2 of 0.027 GeV2. The asymmetry in this process is proportional to the weak mixing angle. The preliminary results give APV = â151.9 +/â 29.0(stat) +/â 32.5(syst) parts per billion. For the sine of the weak mixing angle 0.2371 +/â 0.0025 +/â 0.0027, which is consistent with the Standard Model prediction (0.2386 +/â 0.0006).
