Abstract

Radiative returns to the Z resonance (Z gamma events) are used to determine the LEP2 centre-of-mass energy from the data collected with the ALEPH detector in 1997. The average centre-of-mass energy is measured to he: E(CM) = 182.50 +/- 0.19(stat.) +/- 0.08 (syst.) GeV in good agreement with the precise determination by the LEP energy working group of 182.652 +/- 0.050 GeV. Lf applied to the measurement of the W mass. its precision translates into a systematic error on M(W), which is smaller than the statistical error achieved from the corresponding dataset.
