    We perform a precision atom interferometry experiment to test the universality of free fall. Our experiment employs the Bragg atom interferometer with 87Rb atoms either in hyperfine state |F = 1, mF = 0> or |F = 2, mF = 0>, and the wave packets in these two states are diffracted by one pair of Bragg beams alternatively, which is helpful for suppressing common-mode systematic errors. We obtain an E?tv?s ratio η1?2 = (0.9 ± 2.7) ×10?10, and set a new record on the precision with improvement of nearly 5 times. This measurement also provides constraint on the difference of the diagonal terms of the mass-energy operator.
