A measurement of parity-violating asymmetry in fixed target electron-electron (MØller) scattering was discussed. For the experiment MØller scattered electrons were directed into a calorimeter by a magnetic spectrometer. The experimental techniques demonstrated the feasibility of measuring asymmetries with accuracies better than 10 ppb. The consistency of the result with the theoretical prediction provides significant new limits on TeV scale physics.
