The first measurement of ${C P}$ asymmetries in the decay ${B_s^0\to J/\psi \overline{K}^{*}(892)^{0}}$ and an updated measurement of its branching fraction and polarisation fractions are presented. The results are obtained using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3.0 fb^{1}$ of protonproton collisions recorded with the LHCb detector at centreofmass energies of $7$ and $8 \mathrm{TeV}$. Together with constraints from ${B^0\to J/\psi \rho^0}$, the results are used to constrain additional contributions due to penguin diagrams in the ${C P}$violating phase ${{\phi}_{s}}$, measured through ${B_s^0}$ decays to charmonium.
Decay topologies contributing to the $ B^0_s\to { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu} \phi$ channel (a,b) and $ B^0_s\to { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu} \overline{ K}{} ^{*0} $ channel (c,d). The tree diagrams (a,c) are shown on the left and the penguin diagrams (b,d) on the right.

The $ { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu} K^ \pi^+ $ invariant mass distribution with the sum of the fit projections in the 20 $ m_{ K^ \pi^+ }$ and $\cos(\theta_{\mu})$ bins. Points with error bars show the data. The projection of the fit result is represented by the solid blue line, and the contributions from the different components are detailed in the legend. At this scale the contribution of the $\Lambda^0_b \to { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu} p \pi^$ is barely visible. All the other peaking background components are subtracted as described in the text.

Limits on the penguin parameters $a_i$ and $\theta_i$ obtained from intersecting contours derived from the $ {C P}$ asymmetries and branching fraction information in $ B^0_s\to { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu} \overline{ K}{} ^{*0} $. Superimposed are the confidence level contours obtained from a $\chi^2$ fit to the data. Shown are the longitudinal (top), parallel (middle) and perpendicular (bottom) polarisation.
