Abstract

We report on a new type of high-energy electron-proton scattering experiment in which longitudinally polarized electrons are scattered from longitudinally polarized protons. The asymmetry in elastic scattering at Q2=0.765 (GeV/c)2 was measured; our result agrees with the theoretical asymmetry and determines the sign of GEGM to be positive.
