Measurement of the mixinginduced CPviolating phase phi_s in Bs decays is of prime importance in probing new physics. Here 7421 +/ 105 signal events from the dominantly CPodd final state J/\psi pi+ pi are selected in 1/fb of pp collision data collected at sqrt{s} = 7 TeV with the LHCb detector. A timedependent fit to the data yields a value of phi_s=0.019^{+0.173+0.004}_{0.1740.003} rad, consistent with the Standard Model expectation. No evidence of direct CP violation is found.

Mass distribution of the selected $ { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu} \pi^+\pi^$ combinations in the $f_{\rm odd}$ region. The blue solid curve shows the result of a fit with a double Gaussian signal (red solid curve) and several background components: combinatorial background (brown dotted line), background from $B^\rightarrow { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu} K^$ and $ { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu} \pi^$ (green shortdashed line), $\overline{ B }{} ^0 \rightarrow { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu} \pi^+\pi^$ (purple dotdashed), $\overline{ B }{} ^0_ s \rightarrow { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu} \eta'$ and $\overline{ B }{} ^0_ s \rightarrow { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu} \phi$ when $\phi\rightarrow \pi^+\pi^\pi^0$ (black dotlongdashed), and $\overline{ B }{} ^0 \rightarrow { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu} K^ \pi^+$ (lightblue longdashed).

Mass distribution of selected $\pi^+\pi^$ combinations shown as the (solid black) histogram for events in the $\overline{ B }{} ^0_ s $ signal region. The (dashed red) line shows the background determined by fitting the $ { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu} \pi^+\pi^$ mass in bins of $\pi^+\pi^$ mass. The arrows designate the limits of the $f_{\rm odd}$ region.

Parameters used in the functions for the invariant mass and decay time describing the signal and background. These parameters are fixed to their central values in the fit for $\phi_s$.

Summary of systematic uncertainties on $\phi_s$. Quantities fixed in the fit that are not included here give negligible uncertainties. The total uncertainty is found by adding in quadrature all the positive and negative contributions separately.
